Police: Shots Fired in West End, Car Crash in Old Town Over Weekend

Alexandria Police reported another shots fired call for service over the weekend in the West End, and there was also a serious crash with four cars in Old Town that sent two men to the hospital.

The shooting is the third in Alexandria this month, and occurred at around 5 a.m. on Sunday morning in the 200 block of Century Place in the West End near Holmes Run. Multiple shell casings were found at the scene, but no one was reported injured.

The recent string of shots fired calls remain under investigation, with police increasing patrols in an effort at curbing the 2020 uptick. Anyone with information about the incidents is asked to contact Sgt. Taylor at 703-746-6271.

There was also a four-car accident at the intersection of Duke and S. Patrick Streets in Old Town. The accident occurred at around 9 p.m. on Saturday night, and while police initially reported that there were life-threatening injuries, an update later proved that two men involved in the crash were injured but that their lives were not in danger.
