Police ID man accused in fatal Hybla Valley shooting

Police in Fairfax County, Virginia, identified the man who they said fatally shot another in the Alexandria section of the county.

Francisco Juares, 22, of Alexandria, was arrested on a charge of second-degree murder in the death of D’Mari Norris, also of Alexandria. Juares is being held without bond.

On Tuesday, Fairfax County police arrived in the parking lot on the 7400 block of Vernon Square Drive in Hybla Valley and found Norris, 21, on the sidewalk with multiple gunshot wounds on his upper body.

Norris was taken to the hospital, where he died.

Police say the two men “had an interaction” that led to Juares shooting Norris. They also found two firearms at the scene. How the two knew each other is not yet known.

A witness held Juares down after the shooting until police arrived and arrested him.

Police continue to investigate what happened, canvassing the area, reviewing evidence and conducting interviews.
