NORFOLK-A man shot in Norfolk Sunday night has died.

Robert Hines Jr., 43, was found outside his home in the 9600 block of 19th Bay St.

He died at the hospital, police tell 13News, and they're now investigating the case as a homicide.

21-year-old Cartrell Darrell Ford of Thompson Rd. in Norfolk is charged with murder, use or display firearm in commission of felony, and possess, transport firearm by convicted felon.

Hines' girlfriend Nicole Harris said she feels the person who shot her boyfriend is a coward. 

"He would put a smile on your face. He wasn't the type of person who was mean or anything like that. He was a good person. So for this to happen, it's so wrong," Harris said. 

Police did not release information about a motive or how the two men knew each other.
