A Norfolk man pleaded guilty for a November 1999 Virginia Beach robbery a year after claiming his innocence. This all starts in November 1999 when a man robbed a cashier and shot them in the shoulder behind the Asia Grocery store off of Virginia Beach Boulevard. The robber got away with two dollars but left behind bullet casings and a ski mask. An employee, Dat Loung, was taking trash out at a business in the 5400 block of Virginia Beach Boulevard in Virginia Beach around 7 p.m. on November 29, 1999.
