RESTON, Va. (WUSA) - A suspect has been arrested in last Saturday's slaying in Reston of a man who had just opened a new Dunkin' Donuts franchise, according to police.
On Thursday, police arrested Abir Ali, 20, of Prince George's County, on Thursday.
Patel was with his wife when he left his Dunkin' Donuts shop after midnight last Saturday, according to staffers at the store. The couple drove to their apartment complex on Wintherthur Lane, where police were called about 45 minutes later for a report of a fight.
