(Updated at 2:50 p.m. on 6/27/2022) There is a heavy police presence at an apartment complex in Groveton after a man was shot early this afternoon (Sunday).
Reported shortly after noon, the incident occurred in the 3300 block of Lockheed Blvd, which is occupied by the Meadow Woods Apartments.
According to the Fairfax County Police Department, the man was transported to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening. The suspect is believed to be in an apartment.
Police have closed off Lockheed Blvd between Fordson Road and Fairchild Drive. Community members are advised to avoid the area, though a crowd of onlookers has formed outside the complex. (The names of the roads where Lockheed Blvd is blocked off have been corrected.)
One resident of the neighborhood told FFXnow that he’s never seen such a large police response in the area, noting that there was a helicopter before all the police cars arrived.
The FCPD set up a tent on the site with water for the responding officers, and an incident command van later showed up at the scene.
However, police later reported around 4 p.m. that the suspect was not located in the apartment where they had set up the barricade.
“Officers on scene of the shooting were informed that a suspect potentially ran into a nearby apartment,” the FCPD told FFXnow the following day (Monday). “Upon a search of the residence, the suspect was not found. It is unknown whether the suspect fled prior to officers surrounding the apartment or never entered the apartment.”
Preliminarily, police don’t believe the shooting was a random act, but detectives are continuing to investigate. The department asks anyone with information to call 703-246-7800.
Lockheed Blvd is closed between Fordson Dr & Fairchild Rd. Please avoid the area as officers continue to investigate. https://t.co/Zwgck01wV6
