This week continued to see the fallout of a fatal shooting in the Lynhaven neighborhood last Friday.

Junior Espinal-Calix, a 19-year-old Alexandria resident, was arrested and charged with involuntary manslaughter after fatally shooting 21-year-old Nabel Chávez.

Alexandria resident John Romano was also charged with attempted poisoning of a companion animal after allegedly throwing tainted meat into the backyard of a neighbor with multiple dogs. The incident was caught on camera and Romano faces a maximum penalty of 12 months in jail if convicted.
