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.
