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