That Sinking Feeling

Tonight at around 6 p.m. Alexandria police responded to a call reporting an assault in the alley behind the 600 block of N. West Street, close to the Braddock Road Metro station. When they arrived on the scene, they found an unidentified white male dead.

No further details (such as cause of death) are available at this time nor have any suspects been identified or apprehended yet.

This is so disheartening, especially since the summer seemed to be getting off to a great start after some focused police activity earlier in the spring that was paying major dividends.
