From the Daily Press web site (11:27pm):
According to police, Arsenault allegedly approached the suspect as he was getting into his car parked in the Sentara Emergency Center's parking lot across from the restaurant. The suspect told police that he pulled a gun from his vehicle and told Arsenault to stop, Eley said.
The suspect and several witnesses told police that the suspect fired the gun several times when Arsenault continued walking toward him, Eley said.
Police recovered two knives from Arsenault at the hospital, Eley said.
Police interviewed and released the suspect, who initially fled the scene on foot before police picked him up at a nearby apartment complex, early Saturday, Eley said. The findings from the police investigation will be turned over to the Newport News Commonwealth's Attorney's Office to determine whether charges will be filed, Eley said.
"We don't have information to bring charges at this time," said Eley.
Police are still investigating and looking for any additional witnesses, including any restaurant patrons who might have seen the argument that took place inside the restaurant earlier in the night, he said.
