A shooting in Herndon earlier this month remains under investigation, the Fairfax County Police Department says.

Several community members reported hearing gunshots around 5:31 a.m. on April 16, drawing police to the 2100 block of Astoria Circle, just outside the Town of Herndon’s limits. Upon arriving, officers found a man suffering from gunshot wounds.

The man was transported to a hospital with injuries considered life-threatening, but his condition later improved, police said in an update on Friday (April 22).

The man was released from the hospital yesterday (Monday), the FCPD told FFXnow.

“Our detectives continue to investigate this shooting and are working to determine if the parties involved were known to each other,” police said.

According to police, no additional injuries were reported, but police found multiple shell cases at the scene of the shooting, and “several community members reported property damage.”

As stated on the morning of the shooting, police believe the suspects left the area in a silver sedan.

The FCPD advises anyone with information about the case to contact its Major Crimes Bureau at 703-246-7800. The department also accepts anonymous tips through Crime Solvers by phone, text, and online.

“Anonymous tipsters are eligible for cash rewards of $100 to $1,000 dollars,” the FCPD said. “Please leave contact information if you wish for a detective to follow up with you.”
