A 22-year-old Alexandria man was arrested last month for receiving a stolen firearm and resisting arrest in the West End.
The man was arrested on Nov. 24 after police responded to a call that a suspect walked into the 7-Eleven store at 4949 Seminary Road in the Southern Towers apartment complex, brandished a handgun and allegedly stated that “he would kill everyone,” according to a police search warrant affidavit.
The officer found the suspect a block away. The officer ordered the suspect to stop, and he allegedly ran from the scene. He was wearing a single shoe at the time of his arrest, according to police.
After the arrest, the officer retraced the suspect’s steps and found his shoe and a black backpack with a handgun. The gun had 15 rounds in the magazine, and a records check found that it was stolen from Baltimore, Maryland, according to the affidavit.
The suspect was charged with resisting arrest and receiving a stolen firearm. He was booked in the Alexandria jail on Nov. 25 and was released on Dec. 9.
