The Fairfax County Police Department is investigating after apartments in a Virginia retirement community were hit by gunfire on three separate occasions.
All three incidents took place in the Falls Church area from mid to late February, police said.
Around 10:30 p.m. on February 10, residents in the 3400 block of South Jefferson Street reported hearing gunshots. Police said three units within the apartment complex were hit with bullets.
Another incident occurred around 6:25 p.m. on February 23 when a senior reported hearing gunshots coming from a nearby shopping center. The next day a resident from the Goodwin House in Bailey’s Crossroads reported a bullet hole in his window.
Lastly, on February 27, police said a patrol supervisor heard gunshots coming from the same neighborhood.
Detectives do not believe the residents were specifically targeted, but they are determining whether they’re related.
No injuries have been reported.
