Man kills one of two assailants

"Hampton man allegedly killed in self-defense ID'd"

HAMPTON, VIRGINIA -- A 22-year-old man called out of a party to talk outside shot two alleged attackers early Sunday, killing one of them, police spokesperson Cpl. Jimmie Wideman said.

The person shot and killed was 18-year-old Dwight Seion Phillip of Essex Park Drive in Hampton, Wideman said this afternoon.

The shooter and the other attacker were questioned Sunday and released without being charged, Wideman said. It appears that the shooter was acting in self-defense, he said. The Commonwealth's Attorney will make a final determination about whether or not the shooting was homicide or justifiable homicide, he said.

The incident began at a home on the 3000 block of Bending Oak Drive, in a neighborhood behind the Hampton Arby's restaurant, Wideman said.

The 22-year-old was inside at a party when he was told that there were some people outside who wanted to talk to him. The 22-year-old met two men outside, and the three began arguing about a woman, Wideman said

The two men then jumped on the 22-year-old, knock him to the ground and began beating him, he said. The man on the ground pulled out a gun and fired multiple rounds, one of which hit Phillip in the torso.

The fatally injured man ran across the street and into a neighbor's backyard, where he collapsed and died, Wideman said.

About 40 to 50 people at the party either witnessed the incident or had information about it, and there were no significant discrepancies among them as to what occurred, he said.

All three men involved live in Hampton.
