Two juveniles arrested after shots fired in Arlandria

Two Alexandria juveniles were arrested earlier this month for shooting a gun in Arlandria.

The incident occurred at around 11 p.m. in the 3800 block of Executive Avenue. Police were alerted by a witness that two juveniles shot a handgun in an alleyway and fled on foot. The witness saw the 15 and 17-year-old suspects then run into a nearby apartment building and the lights turn on in an apartment, according to a search warrant.

“The weapon used in this incident was recovered by officers,” Alexandria Police public information officer Marcel Bassett told ALXnow.

The 15 and 17-year-olds were charged with illegal discharge of a firearm and illegal possession of a firearm by persons under 18 and transported to the Northern Virginia Juvenile Detention Center.

The two adults in the apartment told police that the teenagers moved in with them two months ago and pay $350 in monthly rent, according to the affidavit.
