Norfolk, Va. - One woman is dead and a man wounded after two separate shootings in Norfolk early Saturday morning.

Shortly before 4:00 a.m. a 911 caller reported a gunshot victim at 700 E. 25th Street.

When police arrived, they found a 30-year-old woman suffering from a gunshot wound. She was transported to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital where she later died.

Later, shortly after 6:30 a.m., a 911 caller reported a gunshot victim two blocks away in the 2500 block of Leo Street.

When police arrived, they found a 24-year-old man suffering from an apparent gunshot wound.

The man was transported to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with what appear to be non-life threatening injuries.
