(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.

If you had a chance to enhance a child’s future with a time commitment of less than 2 hours a week, how would you respond? You have that opportunity right now to join over 200 Alexandrians as a reading tutor volunteer with the Alexandria Tutoring Consortium (ATC).
ATC tutors work with one child in kindergarten, first, or second grade in Alexandria public schools who need extra help with reading. Tutors meet with their Book Buddy 1-2 times each week for 30 minutes October-May at school, during school hours. Many struggling readers only receive one-on-one instruction through this program, and it makes all the difference. Last year, ATC served 195 children, of whom 82% ended the year reading on grade level and 96% made substantial reading gains. But the need is great, and we are still seeing learning lags from the pandemic.
This year, ATC plans to significantly increase the size of the program to reach over 250 students and to serve every elementary school in Alexandria. This is very exciting news, but we will only succeed if we can recruit more tutors. ATC trains you, matches you with a child, and provides ongoing lesson materials and support.
