Hostage Situation in Falls Church

According to a witness I talked to, a man on Fisher Ave in Falls Church shot a woman at point blank range on the street corner last night. The man then entered a home and police have been surrounding the location since.

Police have the area blocked off and are waiting, hoping for a peaceful ending. Apparently there are other people inside the home along with the shooter, so this is technically a hostage situation.

Fisher Ave is still closed, so its a good idea to avoid that area on your commute home.

This is the second shooting this month a normally very safe Northern Virginia suburban area, as it reminds me of the Mac store robbery recently.
