An Alexandria man was shot late Monday night in the 700 block of North Fayette Street. The man suffered non-life-threatening injuries and drove himself to the hospital, according to Alexandria Police spokesman Lt. Courtney Ballantine.
“There were a couple of cars that got damaged and hit with bullets holes damaged,” Ballantine told ALXnow. “The male subject took himself to Alexandria Hospital with a gunshot wound that was non-life-threatening.”
No one has been arrested for the incident and no suspect description is available.
The incident occurred before midnight near the Andrew Adkins property managed by the Alexandria Redevelopment and Housing Authority, which is near Richmond Highway and the Braddock Road Metro station.
Last month, police responded to multiple calls for shots fired in Old Town. In one incident in the 1000 block of Madison Street, shots were fired at a building and cars. No suspects have been arrested in connection with that incident.
The area where the incident occurred is less than a mile from where a 17-year-old resident was shot on a basketball court on March 31 near the Charles Houston Recreation Center, Mason Social and Lost Dog Cafe. Police are investigating that incident as a targeted attack and no one has been arrested.
