Fairfax County police are investigating a possible shooting at the Fairmont Gardens apartments in Annandale.
The woman arrived at a hospital with a gunshot wound early this afternoon, according to the Fairfax County Police Department, which describes her injuries as non-life-threatening.
“Someone’s saying they got shot in the hip,” the dispatcher told an officer who said he was at Wadsworth Court but hadn’t heard anything. “We’re just having a hard time understanding them. There’s a lot of screaming in the background.”
At 12:58 p.m., a police officer reported that they encountered two people at the scene. One person said they had been shot at but not hit, while another had a bloody hand after falling while running from gunshots.
The FCPD says it doesn’t have any description of a potential suspect right now. Police are advising community members to avoid the area, asking anyone with information to call 911.
UPDATE: The adult female’s injuries are non-life-threatening. Detectives continue to investigate.
