NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) Norfolk Police have arrested two people in connection with a deadly shooting that occurred over the weekend.
Police confirmed Robert Reynold Knight III was shot and killed on the 1700 block of Kingston Avenue on Saturday afternoon.
I was at my computer and I thought somebody was knocking at the door, Apollo Desantos said of the sounds he heard Saturday afternoon.
Police said someone shot the 37-year-old driver of a white van on Kingston Avenue in front of an apartment complex.
At the scene, it appeared the van crashed into a short brick wall.
Knight was transported to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with serious injuries and pronounced dead at the hospital.
Police were looking for a blue or grey small vehicle with front end damage.
Monday afternoon, police announced they located two men with that car and arrested them in connection with Knight s death: Elisha Hernandez, 22, of Newport News and Mondozer Masters, 35, of Hampton. Both men have been charged with second degree murder, attempted robbery, conspiracy to commit a robbery and use of a firearm in commission of a felony. They are in the Norfolk City Jail held with no bond.
The guys they caught, hopefully, that s really them because that way everyone out here feels a little safer and it s actual justice, Curtis Rondarel, a neighbor said.
However, the arrests are not enough to convince Rondarel and his family to stay in the home that is yards from where Knight was killed.
We re gonna move, we are gonna actually dig deep and try to find an actual good neighborhood, he said.
At least in the middle of nowhere or something.
Police are now looking for Tredell Cook, the third suspect in this murder.

Judge jails remorseless sexual predator who sexually abused boys over 25 years
A former colliery security guard labelled a remorseless sexual predator has been jailed for 18 years for sexual offences against boys.
Ronald Preddy, 73, of Dunraven Street, Glyncorrwg, in Port Talbot s Upper Afan Valley , had denied offences including rape and indecent assault going back to the 1990s against two boys.
But at a Swansea Crown Court trial he was found guilty of the offences and was sentenced by Judge Huw Davies QC on Friday.
The judge described Preddy as a remorseless sexual predator who had committed offences over a 25-year period using bribes in one case as low as 50p and in some cases using threats to encourage children into sexual acts.
The trial heard evidence relating to two sets of offences against two boys, one relating to the 1990s, the other said to have occurred more recently
The court heard the offences took place in the South Wales area and that Preddy had been, until his retirement, a security guard at a coal mine.
In 2004, Preddy was jailed for eight years for separate sexual offences, also involving a young boy.
Judge Davies said over a 12-year period, Preddy had been before Swansea Crown Court three times for sexual offences, each time denying he had done anything wrong.
The judge told Preddy: You have shown no remorse whatsoever .
Preddy was given in total a 21-year extended prison sentence but with a custodial element of 18 years.
He was also placed on the sex offenders register for the rest of his life.
FIVE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT MARCUS RASHFORD
1. He was born on Halloween, 1997 Rashford was born in Manchester on October 31, 1997, a few months after Van Gaal left Dutch giants Ajax to take up a post with Barcelona. The day after United scored six against Sheffield Wednesday at home, with strikers Teddy Sheringham, Andy Cole and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer all grabbing braces. 2. He used to play for Fletcher Moss Rangers at youth level Rashford is one of a number of players who have gone on to play professionally after turning out for local youth club Fletcher Moss Rangers. The likes of Wes Brown, Danny Welbeck and Ravel Morrison all represented the team in their junior years, while current United team-mates Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Tyler Blackett were also ex-Fletcher Moss players. 3. He was prolific at under-18 level Rashford topped the scoring charts for United’s Under 18s last year, having found the net on 13 occasions in 25 starts. However, he only made his maiden appearance for the club’s reserves in a Lancashire Senior Cup tie with Rochdale this season, one month before he turned 18. 4. He scored twice on his UEFA Youth League debut Nicky Butt, recently named the head of United’s academy, handed him the captain’s armband for the Under 19s’ first UEFA Youth League tie of the season in September against PSV. Rashford responded by scoring a brace in Eindhoven – the first coming from the penalty spot – as United coasted to a 3-0 victory. 5. He has been in senior United squads before Van Gaal named Rashford among his substitutes in the 2-1 win at Watford on November 21 and in the draw at high-flying Leicester the following weekend. However, on neither occasion was he brought on to the pitch by the Dutchman.
