Delmarva Mourns Virginia Beach Mass Shooting

Posted: Updated:

NEW CHURCH, Va. - The mass shooting in Virginia Beach that killed 12 and wounded four has spread shock throughout the nation and Delmarva. Off Route 13 on Virginia's Eastern Shore, drivers stopping by the Virginia Center received a somber welcome.

The Virginia flag, flying at half staff, served as a reminder of the victims, although miles away, still a pain to the heart.

"You wonder what's going to happen later on in future generations, especially going to schools and young people leaving home," Clarence "Beaver" Marshall said.

The news still shocking to some. Many hope for things to change but say the likelihood appears bleak.

"To be honest, I don't think there's a way of stop it at all, it's just going to happen because people get crazier and crazier," Landon King said.

But despite tragedy, people on Virginia's Eastern Shore chose hope and love.

"Hopefully times get better, I wish they will," Logan Richardson said.
