CHESAPEAKE, Va. — A city police officer was shot Monday afternoon as he and other officers tried to corner a vehicle that ran from police in Norfolk earlier in the day.

All suspects were arrested after an intense search by dozens of officers from several agencies who fanned out across the Deep Creek area. A Portsmouth officer found one suspect hiding under a pile of brush.
