No Arrest After Shots Fired Near Taney Avenue Park

Alexandria Police have apprehended no suspects after receiving multiple calls for shots fired early Friday evening in the city’s West End near Taney Avenue Park.

Police were called by neighbors at 7:20 p.m. and arrived at the 4300 block of Taney Avenue to find a number of spent shell casings from a handgun, Alexandria Police Spokesman Lt. Courtney Ballantine told ALXnow.

No one has been arrested for the incident and no suspect description is available.

The area where the incident occurred is near St. Stephens & St. Agnes School and within walking distance to the Shoppes of Foxchase on Duke Street. It is also a mile-and-a-half from the location of a report of shots fired on January 28 in a S. Reynolds Street Parking Lot, and 2.3 miles from another location where shots were fired near Bishop Ireton High School on Jan. 12. A man was also shot to death on S. Reynolds Street last October.
