A 16-year-old boy has been arrested by the Alexandria Police Department on charges related to an armed robbery and shooting in September that left one victim hospitalized.

On Sept. 22, a male victim, age 21, was seriously injured in an armed robbery on the 5500 block of Holmes Run Parkway. The Alexandria Police Department (APD) said the victim was left in serious but stable condition after being shot in the robbery — scanner traffic at the time indicated the man was shot in the shoulder and the back of the neck.

Earlier this week, APD announced:

On October 7, 2023, the Alexandria Police Department arrested a 16-year-old juvenile male in connection with this incident. The juvenile was charged with aggravated malicious wounding and two counts of robbery.

This investigation remains active.
