BREAKING: One man seriously injured in Holmes Run Parkway armed robbery, suspects still at large

(Updated 6:50 p.m.) One male victim, age 21, was seriously injured in an armed robbery just before 9:30 this morning, and as of 10 a.m. the suspects are still at large.

The Alexandria Police Department is investigating a shooting incident that occurred in the 5500 block of Holmes Run Parkway. There is a heavy police presence in the area and no suspects have been arrested yet.

Alexandria Police spokesman Marcel Bassett said one man was seriously injured but in stable condition after being shot in an armed robbery. Scanner traffic indicated the man was shot in the shoulder and the back of the neck and his phone was stolen. Two suspects were seen in the area on foot running toward Van Dorn Street, according to scanner traffic.

Further details are awaited as APD continues its investigation.

The nearby Samuel W. Tucker Elementary School and William Ramsay Elementary School were both put in “secure the building” mode around 10 a.m. in response to the nearby police activity.
