After a week of multiple high-profile shots fired calls, the Alexandria Police Department responded to yet another one on Sunday in the 5500 block of Trent Court.

Police responded to the call early Sunday morning but said no injuries were reported in connection to the incident.

The incident took place just a few blocks from where four juveniles were arrested last week after allegedly eluding police in a stolen vehicle. That incident caused four nearby schools to go into lockdown.

Police also responded to a “robbery from person” call late Sunday/early Monday in the 100 block of West Nelson Avenue between Del Ray and Rosemont. According to the Alexandria Police Department, minor injuries were reported in connection with the incident.
