Stoneview Square shooting

Fairfax County Police say the incident that resulted in a shooting death Sunday in Reston was not a home invasion, as they initially reported.

Detectives said the shooting, which took place about 2:50 p.m. on Sunday at the 11600 block of Stoneview Square and Shadowood Condos, took place after a gathering of men ended in a robbery attempt, an altercation and the shooting death of a 24-year-old Reston man.

Originally, police said the incident stemmed from a home invasion (though the residents and the suspect knew one another) and that they were looking for two suspects who fled the scene.

By Sunday evening, police said they were no longer looking for two additional suspects.

In addition to the fatality, another man was injured when he was grazed by a bullet, police spokeswoman Lucy Caldwell said. His injuries are not life-threatening.

Police have recovered the weapons, said Caldwell. She said multiple shots were fired.

Police are still investigating. They have not released the name of the man who was killed or identified whether anyone has been charged.

There has not been a homicide in Reston since 2013. There were two that year, but both stemmed from domestic incidents.

    Just two gangs shooting each other over drugs, or a garden-variety armed robbery, nothing to worry about.

      It seems like you may know something that may help the police crack the case. Please step forward, free cash. “TIP187” plus your message to CRIMES (274637), no attached pictures please (new featurepending).

        1. Round up the usual suspects.
        2. Apply batons as necessary to obtain a confession.
        3. Case closed!

          Critics of the U.S. criminal justice system say that zero-tolerance rules at schools are allowing police — not principals — to punish students for minor offenses. This has created a school-to-prison pipeline, through which American kids are being pushed out of public schools and into the juvenile criminal justice system.

          youtube 04pcSyzwoTg enjoy, probably not something you would understand or agree with, but perhaps consider different opinion just like scientist would support different thesis, rather than emotion based, reactive biased stance, take care

      Sounds like your typical Sunday in South Reston

    Perhaps an ancillary crime is the lack of a good copy editor to review each article, unless they really want us to know in two successive paragraphs that he has non life-threatening injuries and the injured person was grazed by a bullet. (Yes, I feel nit-picky today)

      Déjà vu, I feel like I have read this story before… (Oh wait I did.. when it was BREAKING: One Dead, One Injured in Reston Home Invasion Shooting)

      • Karen Goff

        This one adds more information from police.

    • Karen Goff

      fixed. thanks.

        I feel like I should apologize for the rudeness of my comment. I realize that you probably do not have the benefit (or budget) for a copy editor. Consequently, such mistakes will occur, particularly when writing on a tight deadline. I’m a dinosaur from the old-school where nothing went out without review from multiple pairs of eyes.

        • Karen Goff

          No worries. I too, came from print where no fewer than six people saw a story. For better or worse, this is the new era, where things move fast and it is a staff of one. 🙂 I am always open to people pointing out small errors. The best part of online news is you can go back in and correct in two seconds.

          • MaggieSays

            That was gracious on both of your parts.

    At least this isn’t due to the new biker war between the Bandidos and Cossaks + friends. Maybe its a good thing Reston lacks an establishment like “Twin Peaks”.

    • Ming the Merciless

      That would be a fine, fine establishment to have on the Tetra property!

  • Nunya

    the man who was killed was named Kajuan.

  • Tyron

    I’m sure that somehow, this was all a bunch of white cops fault.

  • FoetusBlow

    the down and dirty…and it isn’t even officially Summer yet. Just the start…between Shadowood, the 7-11 across the street and down at the trail tunnels around the Hunter Woods Shopping Center, FCP should just set-up shop…these areas are dangerous and have been for a long time. Citizen Patrol time, perhaps? Does anyone have Curtis Sliwa’s number?? Let’s take back our town, people, instead of whining and crying about change that has never and will never happen with the present leadership(ahem…) in office. Here are the lovely lads(aka, “poor unarmed black children”)…familiar, yes…the police need are help here as well…let’s take our town back, whatsay, before WE become the next Ferguson. https://fcpdnews.wordpress.com/2015/05/18/update-2-police-charge-two-in-reston-robbery-attempt-and-identify-deceased/

    I’d love to know why this was turned into a conversation about race… rip kejuan
