Tourists navigate police tape blocking several streets along the Virginia Beach Oceanfront on Saturday

Two people are dead, nine other people have been shot and a police officer has been hit by a auto across multiple crime scenes at Virginia Beach in the US.

Police are investigating the original shooting and the officer shooting.

A police officer also shot a man to death at the scene.

One woman died at the scene and at least eight people were transported to hospitals for their injuries.

Some of these injuries range from serious to life-threatening.

Eight people were injured in a shooting that happened just after 11pm on Friday in the USA city. The officer shot the individual, and the person died.

No suspect information was immediately available. Authorities said they believe the second shooting was related to the first, but did not provide details on how they are connected.

The shootings in Virginia Beach follow recent mass shootings in Atlanta, which left eight people dead, and Boulder, where there were 10 casualties. "The involved officer is assigned to the Special Operations Division".

Several people are in custody following the shootings, police said, but it remains unclear of their involvement.

"It's a chaotic night at the beach with many different crime scenes", he added, saying that "an officer was struck with a vehicle". An officer was also struck by a vehicle during the investigation and taken to a hospital.

The VBPD noted that in line with "standard procedure", the officer who killed the male suspect is a five-year veteran of the department and is being "placed on administrative assignment pending the outcome of the investigation".

Police responded to additional gunfire in a nearby area, which led to an "individual being confronted by a uniformed Virginia Beach police officer, resulting in a police intervention shooting", WAVY-TV reported.

Officers patrolling the 1900 block of Atlantic Avenue in a resort area heard multiple gunshots shortly after 11 p.m. local time Friday.
