Tyre Privott (Photo: Norfolk PD) Police identified 25-year-old Tyre Privott as the person who shot 24-year-old Chaz Hall in a late night shooting in Ocean View. 1 Dispatchers discussed Privott’s identifying characteristics with officers, including but not limited to height, weight, hair style, last known clothing description and his connection to the shooting.

They also said Privott was considered armed and dangerous. Less than five hours after Chaz Hall’s murder, officers found a man matching Privott’s description walking in the street near the intersection of Chesapeake Boulevard and Fishermans Road. Police say the man shot at the officers when they tried to approach him.

One officer returned fire, killing the man. The man killed by police was positively identified as Tyre Privott. The officer involved in the shooting has not been issued a body camera, nor was he wearing one during the shooting.

The second officer on the scene was issued a body camera and was wearing the camera at the time of the shooting. However, because the incident happened so quickly, police say the officer did not have enough time to activate the camera. In accordance with standard procedure, both officers have been placed on paid administrative duty pending the outcome of the investigation.

How to build a stronger brand with social media

If you re using social media to promote your brand or small business you probably already have some appreciation for its power. In traditional forms of advertising your message is shoved in front of a consumer whether they want to view it or not. Social media by contrast requires your target demographic to take an additional step to connect with your brand.

When you persuade someone to follow or like your page, that action leads to a deeper connection with your business. The potential customer is identifying themselves with your brand. They are happy to view your latest news or offers as they themselves have requested it.

This in turn leads to a greater likelihood of them sharing your content with their friends, one of the most powerful signals of social proof that will validate your brand in peoples minds. If you run a small business you can achieve a profound boost to your branding efforts with social media. However, many business owners don t fully understand the differences between the main social networks, and how best to use them.

This infographic from Ultralinx 1 explains the differences and how to get the most out of each social network.
