ACPD Investigating Early Morning Gunfire Outside Elementary School

Police are investigating gunshots heard early this morning in Arlington’s Green Valley neighborhood.

The gunfire was reported to 911 dispatchers by multiple callers. It happened shortly after 2 a.m. on the 3500 block of 23rd Street S., in the area of Drew Elementary School.

“Arriving officers located evidence confirming multiple shots had been fired in the area of the school parking lot and field,” the Arlington County Police Department said Sunday afternoon. “The preliminary investigation indicates that a large group had been congregating in the parking lot and immediately fled the area following the incident. No injuries or property damage have been reported.”

A resident told ARLnow they heard the shots.

“We called 911, and were on hold for about three minutes before we made it through to report the incident,” the resident said. “It sounded like at least two guns were fired. Multiple cars and individuals immediately fled the area in vehicles and on foot.”

“Police responded and canvased the area for a long time and called back to speak to individuals who had witnessed the incident or called it in,” the resident added. “They said they found shell casings from at least two guns.”

The police department is now seeking more information on the incident.

This remains an active criminal investigation. Anyone with information or home surveillance that may assist with the investigation is asked to contact the Arlington County Police Department’s Homicide/Robbery Unit at 703-228-4180 or [email protected] Information may also be reported anonymously through the Arlington County Crime Solvers hotline at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).
