Arlington Man Drowns Near Riverside Restaurant

An Arlington man drowned outside a riverside restaurant in Dumfries, Va. early Saturday morning.

Police were called to Tim’s Rivershore Restaurant at 1:32 a.m., after the man walked away from a group he was with and had not returned for at least half an hour, Prince William County police spokesman Jonathan Perok said.

Members of the department’s marine unit and dive team found the man’s body floating in the Potomac River near the restaurant, Perok said.

Police identified the victim as 74-year-old Shelton Carl Burstrom of Arlington.

An autopsy is scheduled to be performed this afternoon to determine the cause of death. Police do not suspect foul play.
