Falls Church Standoff Update

The recent local drama of a man shooting his ex-girlfriend in Falls Church did not end peacefully today:

John T. Valentini, 44, who police believe shot his ex-girlfriend on Tuesday night in his Pimmit Hills neighborhood in the Falls Church area, died at 4:12 a.m. today at Inova Fairfax Hospital, police spokeswoman Lucy Caldwell said.

The man died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound after more than a day of police standoff in the residential neighborhood.
