Two men have been charged with second-degree murder and the use of a firearm in a felony in the May 7 fatal shooting of Brian Constanza Campos in Chantilly.

Detectives determined a related shooting occurred around 1 a.m. along Chantilly Shopping Center Drive prior to the fatal shooting. No one was injured in the incident, and it was not immediately reported to police.

More great gang violence. So yeah, let's leave the borders wide open since Biden took office. Why don't you call this what it is? Say gang violence by likely more illegals. But no, you only mention race or other factors when it fits your narrative. Why is that?

Thankfully he didn't use the firearm on the unsuspecting deputies. Good job.

[rolleyes] A few articles ago you were ranting about race being irrelevant....Why do YOU persistently try to push a race card in almost everything YOU post?? Just like you said in another comments section, their sex, their identity, their race SHOULD be totally irrelevant.
