Shots Fired Tuesday Night in Braddock Neighborhood

Alexandria Police are investigating another shots fired call for service in the Braddock area.

Police notified the public of the incident in the 1200 block of Madison Street in a tweet at 9:35 p.m. The incident is the third shooting in the Braddock area since July 9. One suspect was arrested after a July 11 shooting, and police would not release their identity since it would impede an ongoing investigation.

There was also a stabbing in the area on July 17.

The incidents occurred near to where a 17-year-old resident was shot on a basketball court earlier this year. The incidents have occurred near or at Alexandria Redevelopment and Housing Authority public housing property, which is close to the Braddock Road Metro station, Charles Houston Recreation Center, Mason Social and Lost Dog Cafe.

Police did not return calls for comment.
