A 37-year-old male was shot and killed in a parking garage in Fairfax County on Friday after an argument. The suspect is in custody. Thursday night at approximately 11 p.m., Fair Oaks District FCPD officers were dispatched to the top floor of a parking garage in the 13300 block of Launders Street in the McNair neighbourhood.
Authorities discovered Robert Fisher suffering from upper-body gunshot wounds. According to police, despite efforts to administer first aid, he was pronounced deceased at the scene. Chief of Police of the FCPD, Kevin Davis, stated that Fisher’s daughter was nearby and heard gunfire prior to contacting 911.
