An Arlington man was arrested in Alexandria yesterday (Tuesday) for a shooting incident that occurred in Bailey’s Crossroads earlier this month.
Fairfax County police officers were called to the Lion’s Den Lounge at 5820 Seminary Road around 4 a.m. on July 16 after getting a report of gunshots being fired.
Based on a preliminary investigation, detectives believe that 25-year-old Arlington resident Abdulkerim Halid fired two shots into the ground during “a dispute with a group of men in the lounge,” the Fairfax County Police Department says.
“Two adult females were injured from bullet fragments and debris,” the FCPD said. “They were taken to a nearby hospital for injuries not considered to be life-threatening. Halid was identified as the shooter, but he left the scene prior to police arrival.”
The FCPD arrested Halid “without incident” in Alexandria City yesterday with assistance from the Alexandria Police Department.
Halid faces two charges of reckless handling of a firearm, a Class 1 misdemeanor in Virginia that can be elevated to a Class 6 felony if the act caused “serious bodily injury.” A Class 1 misdemeanor carries a possible maximum sentence of one year in jail and/or a fine of up to $2,500.
He’s currently in custody without bond at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center.
