A homicide investigation is underway in southeast Iowa. Burlington Police Lieutenant Jeff Klein says 35-year-old Virgue Orr died at a hospital after he was shot multiple times behind an apartment complex. It happened just before 8:30 p.m. Wednesday and there were several people who witnessed the shooting.
“At this point, we have spoken to multiple witnesses and we’re trying to piece together the information they have provided to us. We are actively seeking out several individuals who may have additional information,” Klein said. No one has been arrested in the case and investigators are not discussing a possible motive. But, witnesses reported the gunfire followed an argument over a debt.
“We were able to determine the victim did know his assailant, but as far as the relationship that existed between those two, we’re still piecing that together,” Klein said.
