(Updated at 6:10 p.m.) Fairfax County police are investigating the deaths of two people whose bodies were found on a trail in Reston’s Stratton Woods area.
According to emergency radio reports, the two people appear to have been shot. The 911 dispatcher described the victims as two older people and said there were pools of blood around their heads.
The FCPD says a weapon was recovered near the scene. An officer told the dispatcher that the bodies appear to “have been here for some time.”
“Preliminarily, there is no threat to public safety,” the police department said.
Police believe this is a “domestic-related” murder-suicide case, though an investigation by detectives is still underway.
If confirmed, this would be the third murder in Fairfax County this year involving domestic violence and a gun, following a Feb. 28 murder-suicide in Wakefield and a fatal stabbing and shooting incident in the Frying Pan area on Feb. 24.
