Virginia State Police Investigate Shooting

At the request of the Alexandria Police, the Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation's Fairfax Field Office continues to pursue leads and examine evidence related to the Sunday, Dec. 2 shooting of a 28-year-old male by an Alexandria Police Officer. The male subject is being treated at George Washington University Hospital in Washington, D.C., for serious, but non-life threatening, injuries. The male subject has no fixed address, but most regularly stays in Alexandria, Va., and Prince George's County, Md.

The incident began Sunday at approximately 4:21 p.m., when Alexandria Police responded to multiple "shots fired" calls in the 900 block of N. Patrick Street. Upon arriving at N. Patrick Street, an officer located an adult male armed with a handgun. The male subject was subsequently shot and wounded. The suspect's handgun was recovered at the scene.

The officer involved in the shooting was not injured during the encounter. There were no reports of injuries related to the initial shots fired calls.
