Local police have released a composite sketch from a June 18 early morning shooting outside the Ashford Meadows Apartments in Herndon.

Officers discovered that a man had been shot at around 4 a.m. in the 2500 block of Cornelia Road. He was found shot multiple times in the upper body in the parking lot, police said.

The man was taken to the hospital for treatment.

A white SUV was seen leaving the area, according to witnesses, the Fairfax County Police Department says. So far, police believe two suspects were attempting to break into the victim’s Dodge Charger. The victim went outside to confront the suspects when he was shot.
