Four people have been rushed to hospital, including two children after an 'active' shooter gunned them down on Virginia Beach in the US.

The incident happened on Whitney court in the Virginia Beach area shortly after midnight UK time.

The police have described the incident as 'very active'.

Virginia Beach PD wrote on Twitter: "Police on scene of a multiple shooting in the 3700 block of Whitney Ct.

"2 adults and 2 children have been transported to local hospitals with what appear to be non-life threatening injuries.

"This is a very active scene. More to follow as info becomes available."

One resident told WavyNews: "I cannot stress enough. I just want the community to band together.

"Make their voices be heard so we can get some more security out here.

"Not 'security', but actual officers to care for our community."

Another resident added for the care to be for 'their children'.
