VIRGINIA BEACH- A shooting near a gas station in Va. Beach Monday night created a great deal of fear and concern in the Great Neck neighborhood.

Witnesses say a man was driving in the southbound lane of Great Neck Road around 5:30 p.m. when he suddenly stopped, got out and began yelling for help as he ran across several lanes of traffic.

Police found him at a gas station in the 1300 block of N. Great Neck Rd.  He'd been shot in the neck.

He was in critical condition Tuesday, according to MPO Jimmy Barnes.

News of the shooting had residents and workers concerned for their own safety.

"We didn't know what was going on. People were asking questions. This is Great Neck, you don't see this on an average day," said Charles Gurdon, who works at a nearby pizza restaurant.

Investigators say the shooting was the result of an argument.  They have charged 54-year-old John Wade McCrory with Malicious Wounding and Use of a Firearm.
