SUFFOLK -- Police say someone killed 20-year-old Antonio Boone, whose body was found in a Suffolk neighborhood on Tuesday. 

His shooting on Burbage Lake Circle put nearby Northern Shores Elementary on lockdown as a precaution.

Police blocked off an area near the 6000 block of Burbage Lake Circle around noon after they received a report of a body near the road. 

A post on the WVEC Facebook page described someone in the area of Burbage Lake Circle hearing several gunshots.

Schools spokeswoman Bethanne Bradshaw said, "All students are safe and inside the main building. We are working with Suffolk Police to ensure that the area is secure."

As a precaution, Bradshaw said the school remained on lockdown until dismissal.  After-school activities, after-school childcare and the PTA continued as planned.

Officials say afternoon buses from the school were rerouted through the Burbage Grant neighborhood as the investigation continued. 

The investigation into the killing continues. Anyone with information can call Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
