(Updated at 5:25 p.m.) A 37-year-old man was fatally shot last night (Thursday) at a parking garage in Herndon’s Arrowbrook Centre development.

The Fairfax County Police Department identified the victim this afternoon (Friday) as Robert Fisher of Chantilly. A 40-year-old man from Herndon, Major Feheem Stokes, was arrested yesterday as the suspect.

In a briefing at 2:23 a.m, Lt. James Curry with the FCPD’s public affairs bureau said Stokes may be Fisher’s brother, but police now describe him as “a known associate.”

“We’re still actively investigating to determine the circumstances that led to this shooting,” Curry said. “But preliminarily, we determined there was some sort of disagreement and argument that led to the fatal shooting…The adult suspect, a 40-year-old man, remains in custody.”

A woman who identified herself as the victim’s daughter called 911 shortly after 11 p.m., reporting that her father was shot and “bleeding out” at 13310 Launders Street, a dispatcher said at 11:08 a.m., per scanner traffic on Open MHz.

According to the dispatcher, the woman told 911 that her uncle “was on the scene but left,” stating that she heard the shots but “didn’t see what happened.”

When officers responded to the garage, they found a man with gunshot wounds to the upper body on the top floor of the garage, according to Curry.

“They attempted first aid, but unfortunately, he succumbed to his injuries,” Curry said.

While officers were canvassing the area, Stokes called 911 and identified himself as the shooter, the FCPD says. He was located and taken into custody at a townhome in the 13300 block of Coppermine Road.

Stokes faces charges of second-degree murder and the use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

As of the 2:23 a.m. briefing, no weapon had been recovered, according to Curry.

“We continue to execute search warrants, interview witnesses as well as other community members that were nearby,” he said.
