Several people, including police officers, are taken to the hospital after a shooting at a police station in Fairfax County, Virginia.
(Excerpt) Read more at cnn.com ...
Kinda obvious don't you think?
two shooters with AK47s....
FBI HRT enroute to provide assitance.
Wouldn't there be surveillance video at the police station??
your scanner works all the way from KA?
Take your mental illness elsewhere
Sounds like the CSI episodes last night. Ill bet its the same perps, too..
This is about 1/4 mile away from where my husband works!!!
Luckily, he is on his way home. Traffic was a mess and he didn't know why... now we know why.
Could it have been a brave diversion for some larger crime - that won't come to light until tomorrow? Who knows?
they locked down all the police stations in that county, as well as the hospital...
I am monitoring scanner users posts from Va.
I work right next to the police station......stuck in my office......I better be able to leave in time to watch 24 tonight
4 officers shot, 1 suspect outstanding, 1 suspect shot.
ping for later
San Antonio, late 90's., same M.O.
All of us are wondering about the motive. Maybe a terrorist attack like jocon suggests. Perhaps a revenge attack for someone in a gang who was shot or arrested. Or perhaps this was a "diversionary" attack to keep the police busy while something was taking place elsewhere.
Er ah, why not just count your blessings that you are safe and say a prayer for the injured people and those who continue to be in danger.
THX....... I suspect soon we'll have a better handle on the why's and who's of this thing.
Shots fired at Fairfax police station

In a breaking news e-mail from WTOP radio, drivers are urged to avoid Route 28 south of Route 50 and north of I-66.

IIRC MS-13 threatened to kill Fairfax police officers a few months back, maybe last summer. Sounds like the open border rallies may have heated them up.
I'd like to know how blocking Rt. 28 advances their investigation.
Lord have mercy.
How about sending out trash trucks to dispose of the garbage...
"Some big heavy metal looking dude walked in and told the night clerk he was a friend of Sarah Connor".
The initial story suggests that the killers were very brave. There is definitely a huge story behind this...
It's unlike when a ex-con goes after a prosecutor or judge, silently, undetected.
Prayers go out for all involved. Someone said a female detective has died.
My wife works right up the street from the Marriot where the truck was found.
To VA posters...
Keep your wits about you and a firearm with lots of ammo nearby...
But I thought that that crap is supposed to happen in LA....
Watch the leftists blame the guns for the crime, and push for more gun control...
I'm looking at the Marriott from my office window......helicoptor still flying around so I'm guessing one of the scumbags is still out there.
per the Fox News Ticker they are looking for a white guy named (get this) Michael Kennedy. No age given but like the other poster said, in cammo. Of course, I guess you could ditch those clothes easily enough and just have other stuff on underneath. They didn't give any age or description beyond his race.
Thanks for the info.
He makes it a general rule to avoid 28 and 66 and takes backroads home, so though he did have to change his route he knew lots of other routes. He got home about 10 minutes ago.
How close is the GMU campus from there?
My wife works in the office park just north of there by Rte. 50.
"How close is the GMU campus from there?"
Pretty close I think, the kid was there and saw all the cop cars speeding bye, about 2 hours ago by now.
You work at CSC or at one of the other buildings?
My kid is there, too.
It's about 15 minutes away... at Cop Speed.
other building right next to the westfields marriott
Well some are going to be disappointed(idisarthur and others) on this thread since the perp is not hispanic.
Prayers for those injured and prayers that some will get over their knee jerk ethnic animus.
I am betting that if this wasn't perpetrated by whites or blacks no national news station will pick this up.
I just put on WMAL radio on the computer, maybe they'll have some info on the 6 o'clock news. It is the only station down there that I know.
I'm sure the kids will be fine, my daughter is actually ON the campus, not at her house, I told her to stay put at least for right now.
And what did I say Saturday? Told her aunt "I really don't worry about her too much down there, it's really safe." Next time I'll bite my tongue!
My son-in-law works 5 minutes from there (he passed the hospital where they took the injured on his drive home) and I am happy that he is a licensed carry guy.
They took them to Fairfax Hospital... that's about 20 minutes away.
AK-47s? I cant over how similar this is to the show last night..
