Cape Charles’ town mayor asked residents on the evening of Tuesday, Aug. 29, to “please go inside and lock your doors” after an incident in Central Park.
Mayor Adam Charney said just before 7 p.m. on his Facebook page that police are seeking a black male between 6’ and 6’2” wearing a white tank top who “was part of a crime scene in Central Park.”
“If you see him do not approach him, just call 911 or the Cape Charles police,” Charney wrote on the social media site.
At about 7:20 p.m., Charney provided an update, saying the incident was not a shooting.
He said a police dog “is on the ground for a manhunt” and “drones are in the air,” apparently in search of the suspect.
He said more information would be forthcoming but said he “was on the scene.”
