Rebecca Ericson’s cause of death
On the evening of Sunday, September 10th, 2023, at around twelve thirty in the morning, the Virginia Beach Emergency Communications & Citizen Services (ECCS) dispatch center got a call regarding many victims with gunshot wounds at a residence located in the 3700 block of Gateway Place. After arriving on the scene, officers from the Virginia Beach Police Department discovered a woman, two males, and another woman who had been shot and were all suffering from their wounds.
One of the men was taken to the hospital, but he was unable to recover from his injuries and passed away there. At the site, it was determined that the other man and the woman had both passed away. Homicide detectives of the VBPD have the theory that the man who passed away at the hospital was the shooter who also shot the other two victims before turning the gun on himself.
