A man was shot at the Mount Vernon Square apartments last night (Sunday).

A dispatcher told police at 9:08 p.m. that 911 was getting “multiple calls” about the shooting in the 7500 block of Republic Court, according to scanner traffic on OpenMHz.

“One caller heard the gunshot, saw the patient fall to the ground and two subjects running away on foot toward Arlington Drive,” the dispatcher said.

The victim — identified by police as an adult man — was transported to a hospital with injuries initially considered life-threatening. The man’s injuries were later determined to be not life-threatening, but he remains hospitalized, the Fairfax County Police Department said at 10:24 p.m.

According to scanner traffic, officers responding to the scene surrounded an apartment where at least one of the suspects retreated. At 9:51 p.m., an officer said they heard an item thrown from the apartment balcony, and a K9 unit later found a gun magazine, though the weapon wasn’t located.

One suspect was taken into custody, the FCPD said. The department didn’t immediately comment on whether police are searching for any remaining individuals connected to the case.
