Hampton Man a Suspect in Shooting Death of Caregiver
Hampton police are investigating after a woman was found shot to death inside a townhome Thursday night. Police say a man in a wheelchair for whom the woman supposedly provided care is a suspect in the incident.
It was around 6:20pm when police were called to the home in the 100 block of Martha Lee Drive.
There officers found the 41-year-old female suffering from several gunshot wounds to her upper torso. Medics pronounced her dead at the scene.
The 42-year-old male resident - who uses a wheelchair - was transported to Hampton Police Division Headquarters for additional questioning.
One neighbor expressed shock at the shooting.
"I'm very shocked," Jacqueline Drake told WAVY News 10. "I can't imagine. The young lady we see her in and out of the complex all the time."
Police believe an argument between the woman and the man led to the shooting.
While police are not sure of the relationship between the two, Drake tells WAVY News 10 the man is confined to a wheelchair and the woman is his caretaker.
"She comes in and does maybe cleaning, attend to his needs, things that need to have done in his home," said Drake. "We see her taking garbage out for him, the things you would normally do to provide health care services to them and companion services."
Police are not releasing the name of the woman until they notify her next of kin.
Officials have not released the identity of the suspect.
