Local police have arrested a 20-year-old Woodbridge man in connection with a Father’s Day shooting in in the McNair neighborhood.

Zaire Davis was arrested on June 29 for a robbery that happened in Annandale on June 25 — a process during which a detective noticed a “striking resemblance” to a sketch released to the community related to the June 18 shooting.

“Based on the investigation and evidence recovered, detectives determined Davis was involved in the shooting that occurred on Cornelia Road,” the Fairfax County Police Department announced today.

Detectives then secured a search warrant and found a handgun, revolver, ammunition and electronic devices.

Davis was charged yesterday (Wednesday) with malicious wounding and the use of a firearm in the commission of a felony in connection with the shooting. He is being held without bond.

For the Annandale robbery, he faces charges of robbery, malicious wounding, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, and conspiracy to commit robbery.

According to police, a man was found in the 2500 block of Cornelia Road on Father’s Day morning with a gunshot wound to the upper body. His injuries were initially described as life-threatening, but his condition later stabilized while he was in the hospital.

The FCPD says detectives are still looking for a second suspect in the shooting, which they believe started when the men attempted to break into the victim’s vehicle. The other suspect is described as being in his early 20s with brown hair.
