Two people face charges stemming from the fatal assault of an Old Dominion University student near campus.

Police in Norfolk say 20-year-old Paul Johnson died Sunday afternoon, about 13 hours after he was hit in the head while walking along a street. He was a block from his apartment when he was attacked.

Prince William County police arrested David William Grimm on a second-degree murder warrant. The second suspect, 20-year-old Christopher Chase Johnson turned himself into Norfolk police. He is charged with misdemeanor assault.

The victim, Paul Johnson, is not related to the accused, Christopher Chase Johnson. Old Dominion says Paul Johnson was a sophomore majoring in mathematics.

In a separate homicide involving a college student in Virginia, Richmond police are investigating the shooting death of 20-year-old Kahron Lee of Woodbridge. Lee was a sophomore at Virginia Union University.  

No arrests have been made in connection with Lee's death.
