A woman was shot in the arm after someone fired multiple gunshots near the Hybla Valley Community Center this afternoon (Tuesday).
The Fairfax County Police Department is advising community members to avoid the 7900 block of Janna Lee Avenue, where officers are currently gathering evidence from the shooting.
According to scanner traffic on Open MHz, a caller reported hearing “four to five shots” in the area around 4:54 p.m. A couple of minutes later, the victim called from an abandoned Goodwill store on Richmond Highway, saying that she had been shot in the arm.
The woman was transported to Inova Fairfax Hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.
Scanner traffic indicates that multiple buildings were damaged in the shooting, with officers finding multiple shell casings, shattered glass and windows with bullet holes.
A caller told the FCPD that a vehicle with “blacked-out windows” sped away from the scene.
Police are also looking for a man who was with the woman at the time of the shooting and is considered a possible witness.
Earlier this year, the 7900 block of Janna Lee Avenue was the site of a fatal stabbing stemming from a domestic violence incident.
One person was transported to the local hospital in non life-threatening condition. Detectives are on scene investigating the shooting. Please follow our blog, https://t.co/XTgRJykwD5, for any available updates.
