HAMPTON--Police are looking for a suspect in a double homicide that happened in January.
On Wednesday, police named Rahmeal Latrey Perry, 18, of the 500 block of Lee Street, as someone who is connected to the homicides. Perry is wanted for two counts of Murder and two counts of Use of a Firearm in Commission of a Felony.
The murders occurred on January 19th in 3500 block of Kecoughtan Road. Around 1:46 a.m., police received multiple e-911 calls in reference to a shots fired at the White Oaks Lodge in the 3500 block of Kecoughtan Road.
When officers arrived they found two victims outside of the lodge suffering from gunshot wounds to the upper body. Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene. The victims were identified as
Joseph Lee McQueen, 30, of Hampton and Clifton Kareem Christian, 24, of Norfolk.
"Obviously, the arrest of any homicide suspect is extremly important. However, the fact that this is a double homicide that took place in parking lot with other citizens around and the violent manner in which the victims were killed makes Perry's apprehension that much more vital to the public's safety," police spokesman Sgt.
