3rd Update On Botched Home Invasion (Occupants OK)

( I am working on a new system and am back to the old system)

According to the LCSO office "Last night's shooting of two men during what appeared to be a botched home invasion robbery remains under investigation."

The two alleged robbery suspects were shot by one of the occupants of the residence in the 1200 blk of E. Kennedy Dr. One, a 28-year-old Loudoun Co. man, was found in the residence when Sheriff's Deputies arrived. He was transported to Inova Loudoun Hospital at Lansdowne, where he was pronounced dead. The second subject fled the scene and was apparently driven to the same hospital, but was transferred to Inova Fairfax with a life-threatening gunshot wound.
The following is updated information regarding this incident:
The second wounded suspect is now listed in stable condition at Inova Fairfax Hospital. The identities of the two men who were shot will not be released until the next of kin have been located and notified. That process is on-going at this time.


There were 7 people inside the residence when the alleged home invasion occurred.

All 7 have been identified and interviews have been conducted. The only injury to the occupants of the house was a bloody nose. That person was treated and released. No one else was injured.

The Sheriff's Office is still seeking the identity of the person who drove the second suspect to the hospital. Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff Office at 703-777-0445.

The Sheriff's Office will not publicly speculate on a motive at this time, but the incident is not believed to be gang-related.
