FXCO police shoot child porn suspect

A Fairfax County police officer shot and killed a suspect involved in child pornography May 19 at the Chelsea Square apartment complex on Backlick Road in North Springfield.

The following information is from the Fairfax County Police Department: The suspect had seven outstanding warrants: Three felony counts of producing child pornography, three felony counts of possessing or reproducing child pornography with the intent to distribute, and a misdemeanor warrant for consensual sexual intercourse with a minor.

Police officers from the Franconia police station encountered the suspect Friday night, but he ran away after giving false identification. As a result, two additional warrants were issued for resisting arrest and identity theft.

Patrol officers and a K9 team were called to the apartment at around 11:08 p.m. Saturday night after receiving a report that a wanted person was hiding in a bedroom. When the suspect failed to comply with their commands and threatened them with a sword, the officers fired at him using both bean bag rounds and lethal rounds. The suspect fell to the ground, and officers provided medical aid and performed CPR. The suspect was transported to the hospital and died a short time later.

One officer has been placed on administrative leave while the case is being investigated.

Update: The police identified the deceased man May 21 as Gray Alan Combs Jr., age 22, of no fixed address.


  1. Fairfax County Commonwealth’s Attorney Raymond F. Morrogh has informed Fairfax County Police Chief David M. Rohrer that he finds no basis for criminal liability on the part of PFC J. Kevin Clarke, who shot the suspect in the Springfield incident in May. No charges will be filed against Clarke, who has been with the department for 12 years and is currently assigned to the K-9 section, the police department announced July 2.
