Convicted felon arrested for gun possession after claiming to be shot in head in West End

A 23-year-old Fairfax County man wounded after a shooting in a West End apartment complex is being held without bond in the Alexandria jail for being a violent felon in possession of a firearm.

Antwain Lee Williams was arrested on Tuesday, September 21, after being driven to Inova Alexandria Hospital by a neighbor. He was alert with police and claimed that he was shot in the head.

It is still not clear exactly how Williams was injured, police said. No one else has been arrested in connection to this incident.

“This remains an active investigation,” APD Senior Public Information Officer Amanda Paga told ALXnow.

The incident occurred at around 1 p.m., just in time for police to arrive and hear two men arguing before there were gunshots inside the apartment complex, according to a search warrant. Inside a first floor apartment where Williams was staying, police found blood, a black firearm, three bullet casings and a broken window.

Police suspect that Williams, who goes to court on October 25, fired a weapon.

When asked at the hospital who shot him, Williams told police that an unknown male walked up to him and shot him point blank in the head.

The incident occurred five years to the day that Williams was arrested for shooting a man in Pittsylvania County.

Anyone with information on the incident can call the police non-emergency line at 703-746-4444. Callers can remain anonymous.
