2 taken to hospital with gunshot wounds from office building

August 28, 2019

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) — Police say a man shot a woman and was also shot himself in a daytime shooting at an office in Arlington County’s Crystal City neighborhood.

Arlington Police said Wednesday that both the male suspect and the female victim were in critical but stable condition at a hospital. It was unclear how the man suffered a gunshot wound.

Police described the shooting as an isolated incident. But the initial 911 calls, which came shortly before noon Wednesday, prompted a large police response.

Office workers in the building on Crystal Drive were asked to shelter in place while police cleared the scene.

Crystal City is across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C. Preparations are under way there to absorb a new Amazon headquarters that will bring more than 25,000 jobs.
