BREAKING: 23-Year-Old Shot to Death in City’s Third Murder of the Year

A 23-year-old Texas man was shot to death in the West End on Saturday.

Yousef Tarek Omar was found shot to death in the 4800 block of W. Braddock Road. Police did not disclose that Omar was shot to death, and instead reported on social media that the incident was a felonious assault and that Omar was sent to the hospital.

Alexandria Police spokesman Lt. Courtney Ballantine said that police did not update the tweet or tell the community about the public because APD was waiting on next of kin notification. The public was informed that Omar died two days later, and no suspect information or details have been released.

Ballantine said that Police Chief Michael L. Brown has no plans to speak to the public about the incident. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Loren King at 703-746-6689.

This is the third homicide in Alexandria in 2020. The first and second murders also occurred in the West End.
