NORFOLK, Va. - A Norfolk man was arrested in connection with a March 2022 shooting that left three people dead and two more injured on Granby Street in Downtown Norfolk.

According to police, 24-year-old Antoine M. Legrande Jr. was charged with three counts of second-degree murder, five counts of use of a firearm and two counts of malicious wounding.

Legrande was arrested in Norfolk without incident with the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Task Force and the Norfolk Police Department’s Special Operations Team.

He is currently being held without bond at the Norfolk City Jail.

On March 19, officers were called to the 300 block of Granby Street outside of Chicho's Pizza for a report of a gunshot victim. When they arrived, they found multiple people suffering from gunshot injuries.

Portsmouth man Devon Harris, 25, was pronounced dead at the scene. Virginian-Pilot reporter Sierra Jenkins of Norfolk was taken to the hospital, where she died from her injuries. She was also 25 years old.
