No arrests have been made after car windows were shot out by a BB gun in Del Ray this week, according to the Alexandria Police Department.

Two incidents occurred in the early morning of Monday (March 6)– one at the corner of E. Bellefonte Avenue and Leslie Avenue, and the other in front of an apartment building in the the 3000 block of Mount Vernon Avenue.

Nothing was reported stolen from the vehicles and no one was reportedly injured. One of the victims posted their experience on Nextdoor.

“The officer said he thought it was a pellet or BB gun, or something similar, fired from a passing vehicle,” the car owner wrote. “It left a center or target hole, with radiating waves of broken, finely fragmented glass. The entire window dropped out of the frame within two hours, and large amounts of glass shards were blown into the interior of the vehicle.”

Anyone with information on these incidents can call the APD non-emergency number at 703-746-4444. Callers can remain anonymous.
