Cold Case

David Lee Lamb Jr.

On Tuesday, August 14, 1990, three armed black males forced their way into David Lamb’s townhome located in the 1100 block of Hillock Crescent.  At 2:30 am, Police were summoned to the Lamb residence after a report of gunfire.  The 20 year old victim was found inside his residence suffering from a gunshot to the head.  He was taken to Sentera Norfolk General Hospital where he died from his injury.  His body was taken to the State Medical Examiner’s Officer for autopsy.  The manner of death was ruled a homicide.  Investigators interviewed numerous witnesses and neighbors who advised Lamb had lived at the townhome less than a year.  During that time, the atmosphere surrounding this home was annoying, with people coming and going at all hours of the day and night, loud music and fast cars driven to and from the Lamb residence.
Investigators are looking for a black male who appeared to be about 20 years old with a light complexion.  He stood about 5’ 6’’ tall weighing around 140 pounds.  He had a thin moustache with freckles.  At the time of the shooting he wore a white baseball cap with a white shirt.  The other two men were also black, but no other description is available.
David was a 20 year old black male who had brown eyes and short black hair, a slight beard and moustache.  He was 6’ 0’’ tall weighing 190 pounds.
