Police Investigate Sunday Afternoon Gunfire in Parker Gray/Braddock

Alexandria Police are investigating a single gunshot that was heard in the area of Wythe and Fayette Streets in the Parker Gray/Braddock neighborhood on Sunday afternoon.

There were no reported injuries. Police found no suspects and nothing was reportedly hit. The incident was reported on Twitter just before 3 p.m. on Sunday. It occurred just blocks from the Braddock Road Metro station and a number of local businesses, town homes and apartments.

The gunshot was the latest in a string of shootings that have occurred in the area. The uptick has prompted the Alexandria Police Department to increase their presence in the area, and Police Chief Michael L. Brown said at a recent community meeting that the shootings are occurring at odd times throughout the day.
