Man Dies After Being Shot by Fairfax Sheriff’s Deputy Monday

police lineA man is dead after he was shot by a Fairfax County Sheriff’s Deputy outside of Inova Fairfax Hospital in late Monday, Fairfax County Police said.

About 10 p.m. Monday, hospital security called FCPD to report that a suspicious man “with some sort of edged weapon” was seen at a bus stop in the Falls Church area of the county outside the hospital’s green garage.

An on-duty deputy with the Fairfax County Sheriff’s Office responded to the bus stop and located the suspicious man. FCPD said preliminary information suggests that the man threatened the deputy with an unidentified object, prompting the deputy to discharge his service weapon, striking the man.

Three Fairfax County police officers then arrived and immediately began to render aid to the injured person until rescue arrived. The man was transported to the hospital, where his injuries were originally said to be not life threatening.

The man, whose name has not yet been released, later died at the hospital, police said. FCPD will have an update on the incident at 11 a.m.

The deputy, whose name has also not been released, has been placed on administrative leave.

Police said there is no further threat to public safety and there are no other suspects.

Anyone who might have witnessed this incident is asked to contact the Fairfax County Police Department at 703-691-2131.
