It was a busy week for the Alexandria Police Department.
After a weekend that had multiple shots fired calls, there were two shootings just a few hours apart at the Braddock Road Metro Station and the Bradlee Shopping Center. There were no injuries in either incident, but early that morning a 7-Eleven clerk was shot in the leg during a robbery.
Yesterday, a person walked into the Burke & Herbert Bank in Old Town and, after passing a note to a bank teller, left with an undisclosed amount of cash.
