Maryland Men Arrested Following Robbery, Gunfire Exchange with Police and Carjacking in Herndon

Two Maryland men were arrested on Labor Day in connection with a robbery, officer-involved shooting and carjacking on the 700 block of Elden Street.

Edward Maul Mejia Sandoval, 22, was charged with two counts of robbery and two counts of threatening to abduct with the intent to defile. Manual Enrique Casco, 34, was charged with robbery, carjacking and the use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, according to the Fairfax County Police Department.

Police believe the suspects attempted to rob a local business on Labor Day after assaulting two female employees. A Town of Herndon police officer chased the suspect on foot when one suspect brandished a handgun. 

After a brief exchange of gunfire between the suspect and the officer, police officers arrested Sandoval. Casco was arrested a short time later after an armed carjacking on the 1000 block of Elden Street.

No injuries were reported.

Detectives are actively investigating the incident. A handgun was recovered during the initial investigation. Anyone with information about the incident is encouraged to call FCPD’s major crimes bureau at 703-246-7800.
