Police are investigating the shooting death of a Portsmouth store employee.
The Virginian-Pilot reports that 51-year-old Robert V. Nelson was found dead inside the Gold Shop about 2 p.m. Wednesday, a day after police came to the shopping center to check out reports of suspicious men in hooded shirts walking around outside.
A surveillance camera installed by an alterations shop in the center captured images of the men milling around on Tuesday, going into the Gold Shop on Wednesday, then sprinting down the sidewalk about a minute later. Nobody reported hearing any gunfire before a customer found Nelson shot to death.
No arrests have been made.
