NORFOLK, VA (WWBT) -

Two suspects are reportedly under arrest in connection with the death of a Varina man near Old Dominion University this weekend.

Paul Johnson, 20, was walking along Hampton Boulevard early Sunday morning when he was struck in the head, Norfolk Police told NBC affiliate WAVY-TV.

He died later at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. Johnson comes from a large, tight-knit military family and is a Varina High School graduate, according to friends and Johnson's Facebook page.

Norfolk Police obtained warrants for 21-year-old David Grimm Jr. and 20-year-old Christopher Chase Johnson late Sunday. Grimm is wanted for second-degree murder, while Johnson is wanted for assault. Norfolk Police say the suspect identified as Christopher Johnson is not related to Paul Johnson.

The two suspects are now in custody, according to Norfolk Police.

Christopher Johnson turned himself in, while Grimm was arrested by Prince William County Police.
