A man shot his mother and himself in Seven Corners yesterday (Thursday), sending both of them to the hospital, Fairfax County police say.
Officers were dispatched to the Woodlake Towers condominiums at 6001 Arlington Blvd around 4:34 p.m. for the apparent domestic violence incident, according to scanner traffic on Open MHz.
A dispatcher relayed that a woman had called, saying her son shot her “in the arm, body and leg” and also shot himself.
Around 4:44 p.m., an officer at the scene reported that the shooter had been located with a gun in his hand.
“He shot himself in the head, and he shot the victim,” the officer said.
Both individuals were taken to the hospital with injuries that were initially considered life-threatening, according to the Fairfax County Police Department. Later, the woman’s condition was changed to non-life-threatening.
Police said there was “no apparent threat to the community.”
