28-year-old shot, killed in Alexandria

WASHINGTON — A man died after he was shot in Alexandria, Virginia, Wednesday afternoon.

The shooting happened in the 1000 block of Montgomery Street around 12:30 p.m. When police responded, they found a man suffering from trauma to his upper body.

Emergency crews transported the man — identified as 28-year-old Pierre Clark — to a local hospital, where he later died.

Police said there is no reason to believe the suspect is still in the area. A suspect description has not been released.

As a precaution, Alexandria City Schools went on “lock-in status,” but it was lifted about an hour later.

The homicide is Alexandria’s third for the year.
