Police have arrested an Alexandria man in connection with a shooting on S. Glebe Road last weekend.

Arlington Police say they worked with their counterparts in Alexandria to arrest 24-year-old Juan Francisco Rivera Pineda in the city yesterday (Jan. 3).

Police believe Rivera Pineda shot a man near the intersection of S. Glebe Road and S. Arlington Ridge Road, near the county line, around 7 p.m. last Sunday (Dec. 30).

The victim was rushed to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries, but he’s expected to survive his wounds.

Rivera Pineda is now facing charges of aggravated malicious wounding and use of firearm in the commission of a felony.

He’ll face a hearing on those charges in Arlington General District Court on April 2 and is currently being held without bond in the Arlington County Detention Center.
