Dozens of firearms were stolen from a gun shop in the Newington area in an overnight burglary this past weekend, the Fairfax County Police Department says.
Over 50 firearms were taken from Dominion Defense (7200 Fullerton Road) between 3 and 4 a.m. on Saturday (April 29), according to police.
Four masked men were seen on security footage working together to gain entry into the business through a small opening above the door. Three of the four men stole 53 firearms, which were a combination of long guns and handguns. The fourth subject remained outside as a lookout. The suspects left in a gray Acura four-door sedan with no front license plate.
The FCPD’s Major Crimes Bureau has now partnered with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the National Shooting Sports Foundation to offer a $11,000 reward for information that will help them identify and locate the suspects.
“ATF will continue to collaborate with our partners by offering our investigative and analytical resources to ensure that the stolen firearms are recovered as quickly as possible,” ATF Washington Field Division Acting Special Agent in Charge Michael Weddel said in a news release. “More often than not, stolen firearms are used in a crime of violence that often leads to someone being injured or killed.”
As of today (Thursday), over 14,000 people in the U.S. have died from gun violence this year, more than half of them by suicide, according to data collected by the independent nonprofit Gun Violence Archive.
The FCPD advises anyone with information to contact detectives at its West Springfield Police District by calling 703-644-7377. Tips can also be submitted anonymously through Crime Solvers by phone (1-866-411-TIPS) and online.

VHC Health hosted its annual Trauma Survivors Day, honoring four former trauma patients and their care team on Tuesday, May 16. For many of these patient honorees, this event was the first time they were reunited with the team of healthcare professionals who cared for them after their injury. Both the healthcare team and the honorees expressed gratitude for the opportunity to thank, hug, and simply see one another again after their experience in the Trauma Center.
In May of 2021, the Commonwealth of Virginia designated VHC Health as a Level II Trauma Center. This designation filled a critical community need; previously, the closest trauma center for Arlington County was in Fairfax or Washington, DC. Since becoming a Level II Trauma Center, VHC Health has provided care for nearly 2,000 trauma patients each year.
