Arlington Man Scores $1 Million Lottery Prize

An Arlington man got lucky and scored a $1 million prize from the Virginia Lottery’s New Year’s drawing.

Khalid Ahmed is one of three winners of the lottery’s top prize across the state, according to a press release.

He told lottery officials that “something nudged him” to buy a ticket, the release said. Ahmed discovered he won after checking the numbers on his phone a few hours after the drawing.

Ahmed bought the ticket from the Shell gas station at 4060 S. Four Mile Run Drive. The Douglas Park-area store will also receive $10,000 from the lottery system for selling the winning ticket.

People in Chantilly and Richmond bought the other two $1 million tickets. Five additional tickets won $100,000 each.
