FAIRFAX -- Shots have been fired at a police station in the Chantilly area.
Fairfax County police spokeswoman Mary Ann Jennings says several people have been hurt. She says authorities don't know how many or whether any officers were injured.
"We had a shooting situation, we're trying to figure out what happened, why it happened," Jennings said.
Police are reportedly still seeking a suspect
My first thought, too. Awfully bold regardless.
Thank you for the updates.
I thinks it's Amazons and this is the first skirmish for their return.
If the cops are on lock down, what are the rest of us supposed to do?
Glad I'm toting.
NBC4 is reporting 5 shot - 4 cops and a suspect. Also reporting 2 of the cops are in critical condition.
Wonder why the Park Police are involved in this...
That's right. I initially said it sounds like Iraq, but it also sounds like our good friends the Mexicans (and everybody in South America).
But it does not sound like Virginia.
They had a helicopter.
More detail on location:
Rt. 28 is blocked between Rt 66 and rt 50. (Have a fun commute!)
The white truck has been ditched... look for any vehicle driving erratic or with suspicious occupants.

Located near or on the edge of Bull Run battlefield?
There's a national park very close by, the Manassas Battlefield National Park. Fairfax police must have called on all nearby police units to help out.
A non-commute... supper at 12 midnight, anyone?
And very near Dulles Airport.
