(Updated at 5:25 p.m. on 5/31/2023) The double homicide in Idylwood on Memorial Day started as a drug-related robbery, Fairfax County police say.
Two people — a 17-year-old and an 18-year-old — were charged on Tuesday (May 30) with robbery resulting in death, a Class 2 felony in Virginia, the Fairfax County Police Department announced. Additional charges are expected in the case, which involved a shooting and multiple stabbings.
Police identified the 18-year-old as Vladimir Garcia Montes of Falls Church.
“During a search of the area, K9 officers located a significant amount of marijuana nearby believed to be connected to the homicide,” the FCPD said. “All individuals involved are believed to be known to each other and this is not a random act of violence.”
The FCPD identified the two people killed as Jonas Skinner, 20, of Ashburn and Braden Deahl, 18, of Arlington County. Deahl was a student at Washington-Liberty High School, which informed the community of his death this afternoon.
Officers called to the Tysons View Apartments on Pimmit Run Lane at 3:37 p.m. yesterday found Skinner in a laundry room of an apartment building. He had been shot in the upper body and was declared dead at the scene.
Deahl was found in a parking lot with wounds to the upper body. He was transported to a hospital, where he died. Though police previously said that both of the people who died had been shot, the FCPD now says Deahl had stab wounds.
A knife was found at the scene, the FCPD said yesterday.
Autopsies to confirm the manner and cause of death will be conducted by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner “in the coming days,” police said.
Two other people — both juveniles — were found in the parking lot with stab wounds to the upper body and taken to the hospital. Their injuries weren’t considered life-threatening, but one of them remains hospitalized.
