HAMPTON, Va. (AP) – Police say a shooting at a home in Hampton left one man dead and four people injured.

Hampton police said in a statement that officers were called to the scene shortly after 12:30 a.m. Tuesday.

When they arrived, they found three men in a side yard suffering from gunshot wounds.

A 19-year-old Hampton man and a 21-year-old Wakefield man were taken to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.
