(Updated at 4 p.m. on July 9) Alexandria Police are investigating a shots fired incident in the Braddock neighborhood last night that left a man hospitalized.
The incident occurred sometime after 9 p.m. last night (Tuesday). Police said a man was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
“During the incident, one male sustained non-life-threatening injuries to his lower body and later was transported to the hospital,” Alexandria Police said in a release. “The cause of the incident is still under investigation.”
The shooting comes almost exactly one month after another shooting two blocks away that left a man seriously injured. Another man was shot and injured nearby in December, and there were additional shots fired calls around that time.
Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact APD Detective Stephen Riley at 703-746-6225 or [email protected]. Calls can also be made to the non-emergency line at 703-746-4444. Callers can remain anonymous.
