Alexandria, VA

Alexandria Police are investigating a number of gunshots fired in Old Town early Thursday evening.

Alexandria Police spokesman Lt. Courtney Ballantine told ALXnow that the incident occurred at 6:50 p.m., and that multiple shell casings were found in the 700 block of N. Columbus Street.

No one has been arrested for the incident and no suspect descriptions are available.

The area where the incident occurred is near to where a 17-year-old resident was shot on a basketball court. It is near the Charles Houston Recreation Center, Mason Social and Lost Dog Cafe.

The last report of shots fired occurred at a West End subdivision in May, and parked cars were shot up in a parking lot.
