JUST IN: One person injured in shooting near the Braddock Road Metro station

(Updated 5/17) Police are investigating another shooting at the Andrew Adkins housing development, just a block from the Braddock Road Metro station.

Scanner traffic indicated one woman was shot and a dark grey vehicle — possibly a Dodge Journey — with tinted windows fled the scene. Police said the shooting occurred near the 1300 block of Wythe Street. Police later said the victim was a child.

According to Alexandria Police spokesman Marcel Bassett:

In response to a shooting, there is a moderate police presence near and around the 1300 block of Wythe Street. One person sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries. APD is on the scene and investigating.

The scene has been the site of several shootings recently.

“They’ve got to stop shooting around here,” one resident told ALXnow. “This is where kids play.”
