(Updated at 6:35 p.m.) Two people have died, and two more have been hospitalized in an apparent shooting and stabbing at the Tysons View Apartments in Idylwood.
When officers arrived, they found a dead man in the laundry room of one of the apartments and encountered another man in the parking lot who had also been shot, Fairfax County Police Department Deputy Chief Eli Cory said at a media briefing.
The second man was transported to a hospital, where he later died.
Officers also found two people at the scene who had been stabbled, both of them juveniles. They were taken to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.
Cory confirmed that one of the stabbing victims was from Loudoun County, but the relationship between the people involved isn’t clear yet.
“We believe that everyone involved came together for a purpose,” Cory said. “For what reason, we’re not sure, so we don’t believe there’s a threat to public safety, but we do want to find out why everyone was here.”
Police found a knife and a backpack with narcotics at the scene, according to Cory.
The police department said earlier that “several suspects were seen running from” the apartment, but Cory noted that some people seen fleeing when officers arrived could’ve been community members who were scared.
According to scanner traffic, one of the victims told an officer that the suspects were wearing masks, and three of them wore backpacks. The dispatcher noted that a helicopter was unavailable for the search due to the rainy weather.
The FCPD is asking community members who may have information about the incident — which is being investigated as a double homicide — to contact its detectives at 703-246-7800.
UPDATE: 2 victims suffered stab wounds considered not life threatening. 2 victims were shot and have been declared deceased. PIOs enroute to the scene.
