Detectives find Norfolk shooting suspect buried inside attic … – Virginian-Pilot

A man hiding in insulation was arrested Thursday. 

Deputy U.S. Marshal Chris Leuer said the arrest took place around 11:30 a.m. Thursday when marshals and Norfolk detectives arrived at a Chesapeake residence in the 3400 block of Foxfield Drive, where it was believed Graham was staying. 

Detectives then called out for Graham for several minutes, searched through the insulation until one detective found Graham#8217;s face buried in the insulation. It was found that he was lying face up, with his entire body covered in insulation. He was taken into custody without incident. 

As marshals and detectives searched the home, movement was heard from the third floor and attic space. After the third floor was found vacant, investigators saw a towel stuck in a tiny door that provided access to the attic. A suitcase was also near the outside of the attic door. 

Residents of the home at first tried to close the door on detectives with several of them having to be restrained after a confrontation in the doorway. Residents repeatedly told officers Graham wasn#8217;t home, Leuer said. 

Graham was wanted for four counts of malicious wounding and four counts of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. He is being held at Norfolk City Jail. 

According to a U.S. Marshal press release, Donnie Eugene Graham, 29, was arrested in connection with two shootings in Norfolk. The first shooting took place Dec. 21 in the 5000 block of E. Princess Anne Road. The second took place Dec. 29 in the 300 block of Mahone Ave.
