ORIGINAL STORY

A boy is dead after a shooting in Roanoke City on Wednesday night, according to Roanoke City police.

Just before 10 p.m., police responded to a report of someone shot at the intersection of 13th Street Southwest and Campbell Avenue Southwest, according to Roanoke City police.

Roanoke Fire-EMS pronounced the boy dead on the scene, according to Roanoke City police.

Jim White, who lives across the street from the scene, says he heard between 8 and 10 gunshots when the incident happened.

"Everybody's got a life to live and for it to be taken away like that is so sad, no matter what they've done," White said. "He's a young person. That bothers me."

Another neighbor told 10 News he saw a car speeding down Chapman Avenue right after the shots were fired.

Police are investigating and no arrests have been made regarding this incident, according to Roanoke City police.

Police say there is no danger to the public and they have leads on suspects.

White hopes the person who pulled the trigger surrenders to police as soon as possible.

"Everybody around here knows what's going on, and I'm sure there are some people around here who know who it is," White said. "He just needs to just turn himself in."

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call 540-344-8500 or text Roanoke City police at 274637. Please begin the text with "RoanokePD." Both calls and texts can remain anonymous.
