News


NORFOLK, Va. (WVEC/WUSA9) -- An Alexandria native and Hampton University student died Saturday morning after a shooting in Norfolk.

Police found 20-year-old Joseph Bose with a gunshot wound around 3:15 a.m. Bose died at the scene.

Bose was a junior at Hampton University where he was majoring in Communications.

"Joe was just a great person, inside and out," said La Shawnn Edwards, II, who is a junior. "He's a mediator. He never really was one to have any enemies or anything, so this is surprising. It's probably just wrong place at the wrong time."

"We all have a social responsibility to guide our youth and prevent these senseless acts from becoming a permanent fixture in our society," Goldsmith said during a specially-called news conference Saturday to address the shooting that killed Bose as well as another shooting that took place earlier in the morning.

That shooting happened on East Princess Anne Road at Hemlock Street. One person died and two other people were hurt as a result.
