All the good they did had a ripple effect on those around them.
Toothman family’s impact on their community was like that of a pebble thrown in the water, one neighbor said. Susie Toothman recently posted online a senior class photo of Matthew, who was scheduled to start his senior year at Hickory High School in the fall, said June Carillon, who runs a haircutting business out of her home nearby and has given haircuts to all the Toothmans. Then again, the sons were polite and respectful, neighbors said. Nevertheless, he also served as a member of the SWAT team and honor guard, and was a firearms and CPR instructor, youth service officer and master police officer, Sheth said. As a result, both boys were involved in band at Hickory High School, and their mother was an active member of the PTA and served as president of the organization.
While loving and very social family who were liked by everyone in the neighborhood, neighbors described the Toothmans as for any longerer enrolled at Virginia Tech, Owczarski said. Speaking clearly, he asked the court for an attorney. With his feet and hands shackled, he appeared calm as he entered the courtroom wearing an orange Chesapeake City Jail jumpsuit. With that said, he had recently completed his sophomore year at Virginia Tech. Early Monday morning, Zachary Toothman was arraigned in Chesapeake Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court on two firstdegree counts murder, one count of attempted murder and three firearm using counts in the commission of a felony.
Story sounded eerily familiar in Chesapeake, that reeled in January from a ‘similarsounding’ case.
Cameron Dooley, 26, shot and killed five family members including his father, retired Chesapeake policeman Steven Todd Dooley, in their home in Deep Creek.
Cameron Dooley therefore killed himself. For example, sunday and found two people dead from gunshot wounds and another injured. On p of that, court documents identified the dead as Michael Toothman and Matthew Toothman, and the wounded person as Susan Toothman. Police were called to the Toothmans’ home in the 600 Helen block Ave. For the past eight years, Toothman taught criminal justice at ECPI University in Newport News and Virginia Beach, said David Brandt, director of communications for the school. Afterward, they saw Susie Toothman lying in the front yard being treated by a couple of neighbors at first, and later by emergency responders. Basically, two neighbors said they became aware of the situation when they saw police running down the street with guns drawn. Othman and the other officer were chaperoning a Hickory High School band trip when they saw a man collapse and performed CPR until an emergency crew arrived. In 2014, Chesapeake Mayor Alan Krasnoff praised Toothman and a Chesapeake police sergeant for helping save the life of a man in Maryland.
