A man who was shot by police during a chase earlier this month remains in stable condition.

The individual, whose identity has not yet been released, brandished a weapons during a chase that started when three suspects drove off in a stolen car, according to the Herndon Police Department. The incident happened on July 5.

Since then, the individual remains hospitalized but is stable.

The incident started when police attempts to pull the car over on the 600 block of Dulles Park Court.

The hospitalized suspect is in the custody of the Fairfax County Sheriff’s Office, according to the police department.

“All outstanding warrants unrelated to the shooting were served,” a spokesperson for HPD told FFXnow.

HPD did not respond to requests for comment on the charges and whether or not the suspect will be released soon.

After the shooting, the officer who fired their gun was put on administrative leave while the Northern Virginia Critical Incident Response Team conducts an investigation, according to police, who said that it will be up to Chief Maggie DeBoard to decide whether to release any related footage.

“The investigation is still ongoing,” HPD spokesperson Lisa Herndon said. “The officer involved is on restricted duty until the Commonwealth’s Attorney determines criminal culpability.”
