ALXnow’s top stories this week in Alexandria

Well, it hasn’t exactly been a good news-heavy week in Alexandria.

There’s a possible serial killer in the area of Fairfax just south of Alexandria and the much-debated School Resource Officers have been removed from their posts pending an investigation into alleged inappropriate sexual messages to a former student, according to the Washington Post. A local juvenile was also killed in a fatal shooting this past weekend, though police said there’s no threat to public safety and the death is being considered an isolated incident.

Several City Council members were honored earlier this week after they finished their last City Council meeting. Among them was City Council member Redella “Del” Pepper, who retired after 36 years in office.
