Fairfax County Police Two people are hospitalized with serious injuries after they were injured in an apparent domestic-related shooting in Reston early Thursday, Fairfax County Police said.

Police were called to a report of a shooting at a home in the 2300 block of Branleigh Park Court, near Hunters Woods Village Center, at around 2:30 a.m. Thursday.

They found a man and a woman, both suffering from apparent gunshot wounds, in the home. Both were transported to an area hospital, where they are both in life-threatening condition.

Police believe one of the victims shot the other in a domestic dispute. Police said the shooting was contained within the home and that there is no public safety threat to the community.

The man and woman are in their 30s and lived in the home together. Police did not release their names.

Charges are pending further investigation.

    On Mingo, domestic disputes are resolved with disintegrator beams. Much less messy than primitive Earth technology.

    Another issue in South Reston, what a shock. I’ll assume these two white collar upstanding citizens were just victims to a horrible accident.

      Wow! A smear for half of all Reston. Hmmn. Been to Lake Anne lately?

      Perhaps a gated community is what you need. In North Dakota. Bye bye.

      I owned the house that these two “White Collar” upstanding citizens lived in before they bought it 4 years ago. I happen to be a white collar upstanding citizen myself you racist POS.

      I’ve lived in HW for 11 years and this is not common. Stuff happens everywhere these days. Don’t kid yourself.

    Well, now that I made my snide comment, and even got a Like for it, I do aopologize to the injured. It was tasteless, plain and simple.

    This incident is indeed a tragedy. My wishes for a speedy recovery to both parties.

      Stand tall, Morningwood. Ahem. Don’t be a traitor bee-ahtch.

      Chuck, I’ll join you. Anonymous, points out an important fact. I’ve been near it myself. I’m ashamed I needed to be reminded. I do apologize as well.
