The big story in Alexandria this week was the murder of Luis Mejia Hernandez on Tuesday.

Hernandez was stabbed and killed in a brawl outside of the Mcdonald’s in the Bradlee Shopping Center.

Alexandria City High School went to asynchronous learning for the rest of the week to give students space and time to grieve. The Alexandria Police Department were at the scene when the stabbing occurred and friends of Hernandez say police didn’t do enough to stop the stabbing.

Another important story out of the week was power outages on Monday following a storm Sunday evening.
