WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- A man is dead after a search warrant was executed and gunfire exchanged in Manassas on Thursday morning
Officials have identified the man as 56-year-old Douglas Clayton Lewis of Manassas.
Authorities tell us that the D.C. Homeland Security Investigations Special Response Team executed a federal arrest and search warrant in the 9500 block of Covington Place early Thursday morning. The search warrant linked to child pornography charges was served at approximately 6 a.m.
Police say Lewis ignored agents' commands and fled down an alleyway between two townhomes. Agents confronted the suspect in the alleyway, and he pointed a handgun at them, said police.
One agent fired at Lewis, striking him in the lower body. Police say Lewis then ran behind a fenced area where he was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head and pronounced dead.
No agents were injured, says the official.
Officials are still at the scene. So far, it appears that more than 15 weapons have been brought out of the house, including some rifles. Neighbors tell us that the same house was raided about 10 months ago.
