UPDATED: Gun Recovered After Fight Near Career Center

(Updated at 9:05 a.m. on 2/15/12) A fight broke out outside the Arlington Career Center (816 S. Walter Reed Drive) Tuesday afternoon, and one of the suspects was armed.

Just after 3:15 p.m. police received a call for a fight on the 800 block of S. Highland Street, near the Career Center. By the time officers arrived school security already had two suspects in custody, according to Arlington County Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck.

Security had also removed a handgun from the waistband of one of the suspects involved in the fight. The weapon and five rounds of ammunition were secured by police, Sternbeck said.

The fight started when a former student drove by a group of current Career Center students and recognized one of the individuals as someone he had a previous encounter with, according to police.

“The adult male subject stopped the vehicle he was driving, got out of the car and approached the group of students. He was heard saying he had a gun and was reaching for it when the fight broke out between the two parties,” said Sternbeck. “The subject with the gun, Jimmy Salazar-Alfaro, 24, of Arlington, was charged with Assault. He was also giving a banning notice and barred from school property.”

Salazar-Alfaro had a valid Virginia concealed carry permit, Sternbeck said.
