Police are investigating the death of an off-duty Norfolk police officer found shot in Virginia Beach. Officials have identified the victim as 25-year-old Victor Edward Decker.
Police spokesman Adam Bernstein said Decker was found suffering from at least one gunshot wound on Tuesday morning. The Virginian-Pilot reports that Decker was declared dead at the scene and his body has been transported to the medical examiner for an autopsy.
Detectives scoured the area near where Decker was found outside a pickup truck, about 100 yards from the Atlantis Gentleman's Club and across the street from Oceana Naval Air Station. Another driver found Decker and called 911.
