Alexandria teen killed in Hybla Valley shooting

Fairfax County Police have identified the teenager killed in a Hybla Valley shooting in the Virginia county Saturday night.

Officers say they discovered 19-year-old Alexandria resident Darren Davis inside of a white Dodge Challenger in the 8000 block of Seaton Street.



Davis had multiple gunshot wounds, according to officials, and was transported to a local hospital. He was pronounced dead later that evening.

Officers said Davis’ vehicle was parked in the roadway when a black Dodge Charger drove up to the vehicle, fired at the victim and drove away.

The shooting is not believed to be random, police said. Police described the suspects as Black men in their 20s wearing all black clothing.

Anyone with information is asked to contact 703-246-7800 and select option two or use the department’s anonymous Crime Solvers options.

This is the eleventh murder in Fairfax County this year. At this point last year, there were 10 killings.
