UPDATED: Teen Charged With Murder in Fatal Stabbing

(Updated at 12:30 p.m.) A 17-year-old has been charged with murder following a fatal stabbing Friday night.

Police say the teen is a “relative” of the victim, and that the stabbing “resulted from a domestic incident that took place in a residence in the 3600 block of 3rd Street S.”

The deceased victim was identified as 46-year-old Arlington resident Dennis Adams. This was Arlington County’s first homicide of 2016.

From an ACPD press release:

On April 1, 2016 shortly after 8:00 p.m., Arlington County Police officers were dispatched to the 100 block of S. Glebe Road for an assault with injuries. Arriving officers located one juvenile male suffering from minor injuries. A police unit responding to the scene was flagged down by medics at the intersection of S. Glebe Road and 3rd Street S. where a second male victim suffering from numerous stab wounds was located. The second victim, Dennis Adams, 46, of Arlington VA was transported to George Washington University Hospital Trauma Center where he was pronounced deceased.

The juvenile male was able to provide police with a detailed account of the events that occurred on April 1. Through the course of the investigation, detectives uncovered a number of inconsistencies in the juvenile’s account of these events and other evidence that lead them to believe his account was fabricated.

The Arlington County Police Department’s Homicide/Robbery Unit has determined that this stabbing resulted from a domestic incident that took place in a residence in the 3600 block of 3rd Street S. Detectives have charged a 17-year-old relative of the victim with murder and stabbing while committing a felony.

Anyone with information about this incident and/or who may have observed anything suspicious in the area is asked to contact Detective S. Bertollini of the Arlington County Police Department’s Homicide/Robbery Unit at 703-228-4243 or [email protected] Information may also be provided anonymously through the Arlington County Crime Solvers hotline at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).

Earlier: A man has died after being stabbed along S. Glebe Road Friday night.

The stabbing occurred around 8 p.m. near the intersection of S. Glebe Road and 3rd Street S., near the 7-Eleven store and gas station.

Police say there was “some sort of dispute on the street” between multiple parties. During the dispute, two people were stabbed. One suffered “critical injuries” and was rushed to a local trauma center.

That victim, a man in his 40s, later died at the hospital, said Arlington County Police spokeswoman Ashley Savage. The man’s name is being withheld while police notify next of kin.

A second victim ran to a nearby home before being treated by medics on the scene. He refused transport to the hospital, Savage said.

The suspect or suspects in the case remain at large. ACPD’s SWAT team was activated after a resident mistook the second victim for a suspect seemingly barricading himself in a home. The SWAT team remained on the scene to assist with a search of the neighborhood, according to Savage.

Arlington’s Emergency Communications Center put out an Arlington Alert notice following the stabbing, geotargeted at those within a set radius of the scene, warning them to “shelter in place” while police tried to track down the suspect.

It remains an “ongoing and active investigation,” Savage said.
