Welcome to Fairlington Villages!


The shots fired incident being investigated by The Arlington County Police Department’s Homicide/Robbery Unit occurred at the 4400 block of 31s Street South, in the Park Shirlington development of the general Fairlington neighborhood.  The headline of the County’s press release on the subject “Police Investigate Shots fired in Fairlington” may cause the casual reader to incorrectly conclude that the shooting occurred within the Fairlington Villages Condominium, which is not the case.

The suspect, wearing a black hoodie, jeans, and a black neck gaiter, approached the 4400 block of 31st Street South in the Park Shirlington development in a dark blue Toyota Prius.  He exited the vehicle briefly to fire two shots toward two individuals sitting outside one of the residential apartment buildings and then re-entered the vehicle to flee the scene.  There were no injuries associated with the incident.

This remains an active criminal investigation. Anyone with information or home surveillance that may assist with the investigation is asked to contact the Arlington County Police Department’s Homicide/Robbery Unit at 703-228-4180 or ACPDTipline@arlingtonva.us. Information may also be reported anonymously through the Arlington County Crime Solvers hotline at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).
