Fatal Shooting on Stoneview Square

Update, 7 p.m. Sunday — Fairfax County Police say one man was killed and another injured in a home invasion robbery on Stoneview Square in Shadowood Condos on Sunday afternoon.

Police spokeswoman Lucy Caldwell said police are no longer pursuing two male suspects who they originally thought fled the scene.

“Some people came forward that may have been involved,” said Caldwell. “Police are not actively driving around looking for suspects. But anyone who has information, we would like to talk to you.”

Caldwell said police believe the incident was not random and “at least one of the persons in the home knew the people at the door.”

Initial reports indicated that five men entered an apartment and engaged in some sort of disagreement, police said. There were at least two men at home in the apartment.

Police have recovered the weapons, said Caldwell. She said multiple shots were fired. The injured person was grazed by a bullet and is being treated for non life-threatening injuries, she added.

“We are still trying to determine who shot whom and what the circumstances were,” she said.

Original story, Sunday 5:30 p.m. — Fairfax County Police are searching for two suspects in a Sunday afternoon home invasion in Reston that ended with a fatal shooting.

The incident occurred in the 11600 block of Stoneview Square about 3 p.m., police said.

Police spokesman Lucy Caldwell said the incident did not appear random and the suspect and victims knew one another. The homeowner was not harmed, police said.

Police said one of the suspects was killed and one captured. Two suspects remained at large as of 5 p.m.

The suspects at large are described as two black males between 19-25 years old, police said. One was wearing a red/white/blue hat. The other had a medium afro.

The fatality will be Reston’s first homicide since 2013.

Police have not identified the deceased or the captured suspect.

Reston Now will have more details as they occur.

    Nope, there no crime in Hunters Woods. None ever. Safest place to be: Shadowood.

  • shagga

    “The other had a medium afro.”

    So this would be arsenio hall circa 1990, and not Kid ‘n Play? Definitely not Afro man with pick…

    Is it still considered a homicide if after all the details sort themselves out the killing was protected under the castle doctrine?

    • notacop

      There is no castle doctrine in VA. You cannot use deadly force to protect private property only life and limb. Shoot someone even in your home even if they are breaking in and it’s up to the Commonwealths’ attorney whether or not to lock you up even if they drop the charges later.

      • parabellum

        Disparity of force (five to two) sounds like an adequate threat to life and limb.

        • RIP.KJUAN

          THE REPORT STATED 4 ENTERED 2 IN HOUSE. DO YOU KNOW THE ANSWER TO THAT

      • Pretty sure if someone points a gun in my direction, I’m gonna shoot them center mass to stop the threat, not to kill. If they die, well that’s their problem, shouldn’t have tried to harm me or my family.

        • notacop

          That is unrelated to the “Castle Doctrine” if you are in genuine fear of life and limb and the assailant(s) are have weapons going after you deadly force is justified. Now if someone breaks in downstairs and takes a TV unarmed let’s say if you shoot them you could be facing a lot of legal problems

        • Tom Terrific

          Even if he’s a 90 year old with Alzheimer’s who walked in the wrong front door.

          • If they’re pointing a gun at me, yes, even if they’re 90 years old with Alzheimer’s walking in the wrong front door.

        • RIP.KJUAN

          SOMEONE SHOT IN THE BACK OF THEIR HEAD (SELF DEFENSE) DON’T THINK SO

      • Greg

        Yet one more reason to fire Komrade Ken Plum.

  • Devon

    Bitch ur so ignorant and pathetic.I will find out where you live in Reston

  • Ricky Spanish

    So… Not a home invasion then? Not even a break-in… Sounds like it was a mini-version of what happen in Waco TX.. People got together to discuss their problems, fight broke out… Someone was packing heat, and then shot someone… The update provides just as much information as the original story.

    • Ming the Merciless

      We cannot report actual facts because feelbad.

    • RIP.KJUAN

      LOOKS LIKE EVERYONE IS HEARING DIFFERENT STORIES. THAT’S WHAT THE MEDIA IS PUTTING OUT THEY SHOULD COLLECT THE FACTS AND THEN INFORM THE PUBLIC,

  • Real Nigga Koba

    My hood on the map now
    #Yeaboy

    • Yeah that’s a real good reason to get ‘ya hood’ on ‘the map’. Pathetic.

    • BeenThereDoneThat

      Pretty comical. Anyone in any part of Reston thinking they live in some kind of badass neighborhood is hysterical. The “mean streets” of Reston … too funny. Try living in Chicago …

  • WhoIsJohnGalt

    From the cradle to the grave
    life ain’t ever been easy livin in South Reston

    • Brad

      If you ain’t ever been to South Reston don’t you ever come to South Reston cuz you wouldn’t understand South Reston

  • Wings!!

    I feel like this never would have happened if all these young men had a neighborhood Hooters to hang out at, instead of selling drugs from an apartment.

  • Town Star t

    Look none of yall understand. Kejuan got pistol whipped the night before by a three goons. The very next day I heard he got smoked.. Not by the thugs but by a white boy defending himself. That whiteboy should never have been trapping in the woods In the first place . But the fact of the situation are, you live by the gun you die by the gun. He had it coming to him

    • FULL TIME BOJANGLER

      Hi Town Star t,

      Help me out. What does ‘trapping in the woods” mean?

  • JFK

    This is the problem,”paper gangsters” claiming this unfortunate incident as a badge of honor…smh! It should only remind us that violent effects us all, even in affluent Reston. Yes, there may be pockets of areas where money is not as abundant, but to call it a hood is almost laughable.

    • Greg

      Have you been to Shadowood? Seen the gangs that maraude throughout the streets? Constantly damaging buildings, cars, and landscape? They even painted their own entrance sign to say “Shadohood” not long ago.

      It’s a lawless place there with incompetent management and a board of directors that doesn’t enforce its MANY pages of rules and regulations (one of which states you can’t paint the *** inside *** walls of your condo without the condo’s approval, or change your paper-thin drafty windows, but it’s chaos in the Shadowood streets EVERY day. Their condos, the condo’s website boasts, are the cheapest in Reston AND Herndon. Is that a badge of honor? Of course not; it’s a badge of shame, but that’s how delusional whomever maintains the condo’s website is.

      Why would anyone invest there if, after a year of Metro, those places are still selling at fire-sale prices, many tens of thousands of dollars less than anything else in Reston or Herndon?

      $120,000 budgeted at Shadowood for legal fees? Guess they knew something was coming?

      ALERT: Condo Sales April 24 – Shadowood is the only Community in the Reston/Herndon area with one 3 bedroom [MLS listing] selling for less than $270,000 – similar square footage; this SCA (3br) condo is listed @$215,000
