2 dead, 2 hospitalized after shooting at large house party in Woodbridge, Virginia

At this time, police say they have no suspect in custody.

WOODBRIDGE, Va. — Four people were shot early Sunday morning during a large party in Woodbridge, Virginia, the Prince William County Police Department said.

The shooting happened around 2:03 a.m. at a house party located in the 3300 block of Bristol Court, police said. Officers were called to the residence for a report of shots fired.

At the scene, officers said they found two men and a woman who were suffering from gunshot wounds. Officers said they tried to administer first aid on one of the men and the woman until rescue personnel arrived at the home, but police said the two men died at the scene. 

PWC Police identified the two victims as 24-year-old Christopher Alan Johnson of Alexandria and 25-year-old Frank Chineji Sapele of Arlington.

Police said a 24-year-old woman from Fairfax was flown to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Officials said she is expected to survive.

During the investigation, officers were notified that a fourth shooting victim from the party arrived at an area hospital. Police identified the man as a 23-year-old from Triangle. PWC Police said he suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound and is expected to survive his injuries.

At this time, police have no suspect in custody and they believe there is no threat to the surrounding community and that the shooting was isolated and not random. 

Several neighbors told WUSA9 there are frequent parties at the home, but never any like what happened Sunday morning. 

 "Almost every weekend we hear loud music, we can smell marijuana coming from that direction, and just like loud noises at night," neighbor Mersina Grljevic said. "I can hear yelling at two in the morning, three in the morning." 

Another neighbor told WUSA9 that she heard five to six gunshots and then saw people running down the street. Shortly after, she said police arrived and a helicopter began circling the area.

Detectives with the Violent Crimes Bureau are actively investigating this incident to determine what led up to the shooting.

Anyone with information regarding the shooting is asked to contact the Prince William County Police tip line at 703-792-7000 or submit a tip here.
