NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - Norfolk police are investigating a series of events that led to the shooting death of a police officer, a teenager and the suspected gunman.

Officials say 35-year-old police officer Brian Jones was fatally shot early Saturday after responding to reports of a man shooting at cars along a Norfolk street late Friday.

Jones and an off-duty police officer exchanged gunfire with suspected gunman 29-year-old James Brown, who attempted to flee the area in his vehicle. He was fatally shot by the officers.

Police spokeswoman Karen Parker-Chesson told The Virginian-Pilot that one of the bullets of Brown's gun struck and killed 17-year-old Mark Rodriguez, who was sitting in his car.

Jones was a five-year veteran of the department and is survived by his wife, two sons and a daughter.
