Homicide rocks quiet Annandale neighborhood

Heavy police presence on Tobin Road following a homicide on Beverly Drive.

A quiet, tree-lined street in Annandale was swarming with SWAT personnel, police officers, and EMTs, as law enforcement responded to reports of shots fired inside a home. 


One adult man was found deceased in the backyard of a single-family house on the 3400 block of Beverly Drive. An adult woman, who also had been shot, was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. A suspect, an adult male, gave himself up inside the house and is in police custody, reports Fairfax County Police spokesperson Tawny Wright.

“Several children” were inside the home at the time of the shooting, she said. They were not harmed. Wright could not provide any further information about them, other than to say they were not harmed.  

The police have not announced the names or ages of the victims or suspect, pending notification of relatives. Finding a translator has also caused delays, as there is a language barrier.

According to Wright, the suspect and victims all knew one another but the relationships and where they lived in the house where shooting occurred haven’t been determined.

A neighbor, Ramzy Gibran, who was walking his dogs nearby at the time, heard at least one gunshot. “It’s scary,” said Gibran, who’s lived there for 33 years and says it’s a quiet neighborhood.

He said residents had gotten an automated call from Fairfax County at about 1:30 p.m. telling them to stay inside. That was followed by another call a little after 3 p.m. giving the all-clear. 


  1. Sounds like another Farifax County illegal drama.

    1. Sounds more like another tunnel-vision idiot fails to see the actual picture. Regardless of whether any of the people involved are/were legal immigrants, illegal immigrants, or born here, this IS a case of domestic violence. Two people ended up dead and three children (who lost both their parents) are witnesses to what HAD to be a horrific murder. Their lives have changed forever.

      Whether you're a bigot or "just" a troll, you really should shut up.

  2. Way to jump to conclusions.

    Domestic violence is a problem in all ethnic communities and if you think yours is immune, get out of your bubble.

    1. True, but every case that comes up in Annandale happens to be another third world piece of crap. Probably made too much money from ripping off americans selling crap jewelry or toxic overpriced dumplings.

      Give me a break, return the garbage to sender.

    2. Wow. Seriously, wow. The fact that this is your first thought about this incident reflects on your own toxic, piece of crap mentality. Bet your bigoted behind, your own 'sender' is regretting sending you to live among us
