Police are looking for a 21-year-old Suffolk man in connection with the shooting death of another man at a party in the 1000 block of Cogic Square early Saturday morning.

Police on Saturday issued warrants for Jeffrey O’Neil Jennings Jr., 21, of the 400 block of St. James Avenue, following the death of Lloyd Randolph Green Sr., according to Suffolk spokeswoman Debbie George.



After police dispatchers received calls at little after 1 a.m. about shots fired in the neighborhood, emergency responders arrived and found Green on the ground with multiple injuries. George said in an email that Green was pronounced dead on the scene, adding later that a preliminary investigation revealed Green had just arrived at a party when he was shot.
