Hampton, Va. - Hampton Police are still looking for a 27-year-old man after two people were shot in Hampton on Monday, April 13. One of the victims has since died as a result of his injuries.

The shooting is now being investigated as a homicide.

This occurred in the 500 block of Smiley Road around 7:30 p.m. that night.

When officers arrived, they found that a woman had been shot inside of a home. She was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries and remains hospitalized at this time.

At around 7:54 p.m., a man arrived at the Sentara Careplex suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He died as a result of his injuries on April 21 at 7:45 p.m. He has been identified as 24-year-old Keenan Elijahwa Kelly of Hampton.

Police say people inside two different vehicles, a gold-colored sedan and a white-colored sedan, fired at each other in the 1600 block of East Pembroke Avenue. Both victims were shot during the incident.

It was determined that Keenan Kelly was an occupant in the dark-colored sedan when he was shot. The woman shot was not an intended victim.

Police have identified 27-year-old Clyde Alonzo Lewis as the suspect in the shooting. He is considered armed and dangerous.

Lewis has warrants on file for one count of maiming, one count of shooting into an occupied dwelling, one count of shooting into an occupied vehicle and one count of use of a firearm in commission of a felony.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to contact the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.

    According to Mayor Wallace, he seems to think that violent crimes are down in Hampton. Yep…maybe until the very next week….wake up Mr. Mayor. Hampton is ranked 14th in Virginia as being the most violent out of 36 cities, but these numbers have to be wrong because we are seeing violent crime every week, sometimes twice in a week.

    I live about half a mile from there behind jones and heard 5 gushots outside house two weeks ago and called the police, on car drove past once. The next morning I found a shell not 20 feet from my house. The police need to step up their patrols in the area.
