(Newser) – Authorities say 10 people have been shot—one fatally—when gun violence erupted at a holiday weekend party in Virginia, the AP reports. Chesapeake Police Department spokesman Leo Kosinski said via email that the total number of people shot was 10 and that one of those victims has died. Few other details were released. Police were called to the Chesapeake neighborhood of Holly Cove just before 10pm on Saturday after receiving reports of traffic congestion and people refusing to move vehicles. Sentara Norfolk General Hospital is said to be treating eight patients with gunshot wounds, all male. Little else has been released, but CNN reports that the neighborhood has a Memorial Day block party every year. (Read more shooting stories.)
