Man dead after shooting at Bailey’s Crossroads apartment building

A man is dead after a fatal shooting at the Skyline Towers apartment building in the Bailey’s Crossroads area of Fairfax County, Virginia, on Sunday afternoon.

Around 5 p.m. Sunday, Fairfax County police tweeted that they were on the scene of a shooting that occurred on the 5500 block of Seminary Road, near Bailey’s Crossroads.

On the scene, officers found an adult male victim, who has not been identified, suffering from bullet wounds inside of a residence on the third floor. He was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.



Police said three men in their 20s were seen running from the area after the shooting. Residents in the area were briefly asked to shelter in place, but that advisory was rescinded a short time later.

At a press conference later in the day, Lt. James Curry of the Fairfax County Police Department addressed the three men the department are seeking.

“Turn yourself in. It’s a matter of time before we know who you are, and it’s a matter of time before you’re in custody,” he said.
