JUST IN: Three arrested after bystander shot outside West End 7-Eleven

Three men are in custody after allegedly shooting handguns at a parked vehicle in the West End and wounding a bystander on Sunday afternoon (Jan. 9).

The incident occurred at around 3:20 p.m. in the parking lot of the 7-Eleven convenience store at 30 S. South Reynolds Street. The Alexandria Police Department reported that two of the suspect left the store, got into a parked car and then fired shots at another car in the parking lot.

“During the altercation, an innocent bystander was shot,” APD reported. “The victim, a 26-year-old female, city of Alexandria resident was transported to the hospital by a Good Samaritan. The victim is currently in stable condition with life-threatening injuries.”
