NEWPORT NEWS -- A man shot a week ago Monday has died and police want to talk with the person he said he was going to meet.

Michael Reeder, 33, was found on the porch of a home on Denbigh Blvd. around 5:00 a.m. on July 20; he died Sunday, July 26, at the hospital.

According to police, Reeder gave officers at least two different accounts of what had occurred.

Detectives say Reeder left his home in the 900 block of 18th Street around 10:00 p.m. on the 19th and was going to meet a friend he'd only call "Iron."

Police say Reeder wouldn't tell them where that friend lived and also wouldn't describe his attackers.

Investigators hope "Iron" could help them in the investigation.

If you know anything about that man or this shooting, call Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
