Alexandria police say they have a male in custody after a fatal shooting in the West End early this morning.

Bassett said the call for shots fired came in at 1:56 a.m. at 1400 N. Beauregard Street, part of the Brookdale at Mark Center neighborhood in the West End.

Alexandria Police spokesman Marcel Bassett said both suspect and victim were male and knew each other. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene and the suspect was arrested at the scene.

Neither the name of the victim nor the suspect have been released at the time of writing.

A man was shot multiple times last year less than a block away.

The shooting is the fourth homicide in Alexandria this year:

  • The first homicide victim was Elijah Williams, 25, in March, also in the West End.
  • The second homicide was an alleged attempted carjacking on May 13 that turned fatal when the driver shot and killed 18-year-old Jordan Poteat
  • The third homicide was the stabbing of 18-year-old Luis Mejia Hernandez on May 24. One 16-year-old has been arrested and charged with murder.
