Fairfax County police officers are searching the Culmore area for a man who reportedly shot a person near the 7-Eleven on Glen Carlyn Drive.

The victim has been transported to a hospital with serious injuries, the Fairfax County Police Department said just before 2 p.m.

At 1:06 p.m., a dispatcher directed officers to the convenience store at 3337 Glen Carlyn Drive for a shooting “that just occurred,” according to scanner traffic. Officers reported that a man believed to be the suspect was last seen running on foot toward Glen Carlyn and Bellview Drive.

The suspect may be armed with a pistol, an officer said. He was described as wearing a blue sweater and dark pants.

The FCPD says anyone with information about the incident should call 911.

This is now the third shooting on Glen Carlyn Drive around the Culmore shopping center in 2023, following ones on Jan. 5 and April 17. The area was also targeted by a series of robberies in March.
