No injuries or arrests after shots fired in Old Town Sunday night

There were no reported injuries after shots were fired in Old Town early on Sunday night (September 5).

The incident occurred in the 900 block of S. Alfred Street near Gibbon Street, which is a residential area full of town homes in the southern portion of Old Town.

Shell casings were recovered at the scene, and the incident is under investigation, according to police.

There was a rash of gunfire incidents in Alexandria last summer and fall, and the number of incidents has dwindled this year in comparison. Between October 2020 and June 2021, APD confiscated 39 firearms (handguns and rifles), arrested more than 35 people, and executed nearly 200 search warrants.

Most recently, five Alexandria men were arrested after a shots fired incident in Old Town North on July 21.
