Fairfax County Police Fairfax County Police said there has been a second incident of a bullet being shot into a home in unincorporated Herndon.

Earlier this week, a shot was fired into the bedroom of a 9-year-old girl as she slept in her home in the 2100 block of Monaghan Drive in Herndon. The bullet was found in her mattress, police said.

On Friday at around 10:48 p.m., gunfire apparently was aimed at the same home. A man called police and said he was in his living room when he heard several gunshots.

Officers who processed the scene found that a bullet had penetrated into the residence. Police also found numerous bullet holes located on the exterior of the dwelling but had not entered into the home. There were no injuries, police said.

About 12:30 a.m. on Saturday, officers were still on scene and conducting their investigation when they heard several more gunshots coming from a nearby street. Additional officers and resources responded to check the area.

Officers are continuing their investigation, conducting a canvas, and increasing their presence in the area. There is no suspect information at this time and the investigation is ongoing, police said.

  • Why do you bother?

    Sounds like it’s time to put up surveillance cameras on the house…

    If nothing else, the child should sleep somewhere else — like someone else’s house, a friend’s, a neighbor’s. Even a shelter. This is nuts.

    With shot number two, perhaps the police will abandon their usual stupid assertion that the crime was “random”.
