Police capture suspect after one killed, another injured in Hybla Valley shooting

Police are still trying to determine what provoked a man to shoot and kill one man and injure another early Saturday evening in Hybla Valley.

According to Howard Ludwig, Fairfax County police spokesman, it started around 6:20 p.m. on Richmond Highway at Dart Drive at the bus stop. That is where the suspect reportedly became involved in an argument with the victim and shot him.

The shooter fled the area, but while police were investigating, Ludwig says, they received the report of another shooting in a nearby parking lot around 6:45 p.m. Police then found another man who had been shot. That victim reportedly told police the shooter attempted to carjack him before he fled on foot. That shooting victim is expected to survive.

Police quickly located the alleged shooter and placed him under arrest. Ludwig says he anticipates the department to release more information in the morning.
