Update: Braddock Area Shooting Suspect Identity Released

The Alexandria man arrested after a July 11 shooting in the Braddock area has been identified as 34-year-old Lewis Dajuan Rose, according to court records.

Rose was arrested after police responded to a call for shots fired at around 12:45 a.m. on July 11. Rose, who suffered a broken bone above his left eye in an altercation in the 800 block of N. Henry Street, was arrested with seven cigarettes that tested positive for being dipped in PCP.

Rose was charged with possession of a firearm while in possession of a Schedule I/Schedule II substance, failure to stop/eluding police and possession of a firearm by a person subject to a protective order.

Rose was found by police allegedly holding a compact Kel-Tec 9mm pistol in his right hand. The gun had six rounds in the magazine and one round in the chamber. Police recovered one shell casing from the scene, but it was not determined to belong to the gun allegedly taken from Rose, according to police.

Rose’s story on what happened changed multiple times, according to police.

“Before we entered the hospital, Mr. Rose stated the laceration by his eye was caused by an officer,” noted the affidavit. “It should be noted that later on, (police) overheard Mr. Rose’s conversation with a hospital nurse and he advised her that he was struck in the face by a firearm because someone attempted to rob him before police arrival.”

Rose told police that he didn’t remember how he was injured, and said that he did not shoot a gun and did not own a gun. He also asked to use the restroom multiple times and attempted to escape the hospital and was taken to the ground by officers, noted the affidavit.

“I should have ran out 20 minutes ago,” Rose laughingly said, according to police.

There were three reports of shots fired and a stabbing in the Braddock area last month, and police are investigating whether any of the cases are connected.

The area is also near to where a 17-year-old resident was shot on a basketball court earlier this year. It is near the Charles Houston Recreation CenterMason Social and Lost Dog Cafe.
