Fairfax County police are searching for a 43-year-old man from Mount Vernon who they say is a suspect in a fatal shooting on Sunday (Oct. 2).
Detectives believe Kyjuan Omar Braxton Trott shot Brandon Wims, 31, of Maryland multiple times after approaching the vehicle where Wims and two other people were sitting at the Old Mill Gardens apartment complex in Mount Vernon, the Fairfax County Police Department said today (Thursday).
Trott was seen leaving the area in a silver Nissan Sentra registered in Maryland as 2ET4005, according to police.
Police responded to the 5800 block of St Gregorys Lane at 7 a.m. after receiving a report of gunshots in the area. At the same time, Wims was driven to Inova Mount Vernon Hospital before being transferred to Inova Fairfax Hospital, where he ultimately died.
The other two occupants of the vehicle were treated for non-life-threatening injuries, according to police.
As reported earlier this week, the FCPD says its detectives believe Trott and Wims were acquainted with each other, but the exact nature of their relationship remains under investigation.
Trott is now wanted by the FCPD, which has obtained warrants for second-degree murder, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, felon in possession of a firearm, and felon in possession of ammunition.
“Detectives are asking anyone with information to Trott’s whereabouts to call 703-246-7800,” the police department says. “If you see Trott, please call 911 immediately.”
