CHESAPEAKE, Va. — A police officer was shot Friday night while responding to a robbery in South Norfolk and a suspect later was shot by police after being chased into Norfolk.

Officers received a call about a robbery at a Chanello's Pizza at Bainbridge Boulevard and Godwin Avenue shortly before 10 p.m., said Lisa Spruill, a Chesapeake police spokeswoman. When they arrived, two men were still there and one opened fire, striking the officer. The officer was taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital and his injuries were not believed to be life-threatening, Spruill said.
