  • VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (9/18/13)--Virginia Beach  police have identified the suspect shot and killed by an off-duty police officer during an attempted robbery at Chartway FCU as Courtney Andrew Holloman, 30, of Virginia Beach. Holloman died at the scene from a gunshot wound to the torso (The Virginian-Pilot Sept. 17).
