The Alexandria Police Department (APD) has charged Alexandria resident Bisrat Shaga, 35, with first-degree murder after stabbing a man in a fatal Del Ray church stabbing last month.

Shaga reportedly killed Centreville resident Emmanuel Negatu, 38, in the One God In Christ Apostolic Church (2707 Dewitt Avenue) on Nov. 12

“On Sunday, November 12, 2023, at approximately 4:27 PM, the Alexandria Police Department responded to a call for service regarding a stabbing,” APD said in a release. “Upon arrival, APD officers found a 38-year-old male who died inside the location.”

Scanner traffic indicated that APD found the suspect at a nearby Exxon station just before 5 p.m.

Negatu’s murder was the seventh homicide in Alexandria.

APD said the investigation is still active and anyone with information is asked to contact Detective M. Kramarik via phone at 703 746 6650, email at [email protected], or call the non-emergency line at 703 746 4444.
