Update: Four arrested, suspect’s mother among wounded in West End shootout

More details have emerged regarding a West End shootout last fall. Four adult males have been arrested in connection with the incident, and ALXnow has discovered that a mother of one of the suspects was shot in the arm and didn’t report it to police.

As previously reported, at around 5 p.m. on September 13, Alexandria Police responded to reports of 10-15 gunshots fired in the 3100 block of S. 28th Street near Ft. Ward Park.

A man was shot in the stomach and another man was also injured while driving with his girlfriend nearby at West Braddock Road and N. Van Dorn Street.

Witnesses told police that the shooting was sparked by a FaceTime argument between the suspects, according to a search warrant affidavit.

Alexandria Police arrested the following suspects, all of whom are being held without bond:

  • Alexandria resident Adham Heiba, 18, who was booked on September 16 for discharging a firearm in public, use of a firearm in commission of a felony and attempted malicious wounding
  • Prince William County resident Jamari Ankrah, 20, who was booked into jail on February 25 without bond for possession of a weapon by a convicted felon and resisting arrest
  • Prince William County resident Rashine Dainkay, 18, who was booked into jail on January 26 for distributing or possession with intent to distribute marijuana, distributing or possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance and possession of firearms while in possession of certain substances
  • Alexandria resident Terrell Talley, 19, who was charged with shooting into an occupied dwelling and discharging a firearm in a public place

Ankhrah was allegedly seen shooting at a group of 10-15 people from inside of one of the cars. He was later arrested on Feb. 25, and allegedly attempted to elude police in a foot chase.

“When Mr. Ankrah was arrested he was… in possession of a handgun that was tucked in his waistband,” police reported.

Ankrah then allegedly told police that “he witnessed the offense and that an unknown subject shot at him, which ultimately led to his mother being shot in the arm,” according to police. “Mr. Ankrah stated that they did not report her injury or this offense to police.”

Dainkay was allegedly seen driving from the scene in a black Mercedes. A search of the vehicle later yielded an AK-47 assault rifle, according to police.
