<b>Police Arrest Four in Shooting</b>

Arlington police arrested four people last week in a shooting on South Glebe; police report the shooting stemmed from an incident on 395.

Just before 5 a.m. on May 7, police received reports of a fight, begun in the District, that continued as the participants were traveling southbound on 395.

Two SUVs, a Jeep Cherokee and a Cadillac Escalade, were involved, and exited 395 onto South Glebe, near 24th Street South. The two vehicles bumped, and then a passenger in the Cadillac fired three shots into the Jeep. No one inside the Jeep was hit by bullets, but some were injured by broken glass.

The two SUVs then returned to southbound 395, and Arlington police stopped them near Seminary road. They arrested Kimberly Ann Marcotrigiano, 26, the driver of the Jeep, along with three occupants in the Cadillac, Marvin Levester Hendricks, 21, and Brian F. Luke, 37, both of Virginia Beach; and Ronald James Alston, 28, of Fall River, Mass.

Marcotrigiano, the driver of the Jeep, was charged with attempted malicious wounding for bumping the Cadillac. Hendricks was charged with two counts of attempted malicious wounding and two counts of use of a firearm during a felony for firing the shots into the Jeep. Luke was charged with possession of a concealed weapon, attempted malicious wounding and use of a firearm in a felony. Alston is being held on a fugitive warrant from Massachusetts. A gun was recovered at the scene.

Police say they continue to investigate, and more charges may be forthcoming.

<b>County Seeks Biting Dog</b>

Arlington health officials are looking for information on a black and tan German shepherd involved in an incident on Sunday, May 4, in the parking lot of Potomac Overlook Regional Park.

A man in the parking lot stopped to pet the dog, then on a leash, when the dog bit him. The woman walking the dog was described as 5’8", with chin-length grey hair, wearing blue slacks and a white shirt. The man treated his injury, but county officials need to find the dog to determine whether rabies treatment is necessary.

The owner or anyone with information about the dog or the incident should call the Arlington County Animal Welfare League at 703-931-9241, and press "1" for emergencies on a touch-tone phone.
