Police say a man who was armed with a gun shot another man inside a Bailey’s Crossroads grocery store Saturday evening claiming he did it in self defense.

It happened at the Food Star at 5521 Leesburg Pike around 6:43 p.m., says 2nd Lt. James Curry, Fairfax County police spokesman. He said the man who was shot suffered life-threatening injuries.

Lt. Curry would not speculate as to the circumstances that led to the shooting or if the gunman is licensed to carry the gun. But the shooter had called police and he is with investigators, Curry said.

Police later said via social media that the shooter told officers that he fired the shots “in self defense.”
