Manassas City police say a person shot at the Barrington Park Apartments on Tuesday afternoon has died, and a suspect is in custody.

Officers were called to the area of Leighton Place about 12:30 p.m., where they arrived to find the male victim suffering a gunshot wound. That person was taken to a local hospital, where he died.

One person is in custody and charges are pending, police said in a news release.

The incident appears to be isolated and not random, the release said.

The investigation is ongoing.

I see where “insidenova” is now politically correct. They do not reveal the race or name of the victim or suspect.

Sad to see PWC going the way of the other two socialist counties (Fairfax and Loudoun).

This story was posted 14 hours ago and you don't provide a name of the person under arrest?

There is no need to provide a description (race) of the suspect because he has already been arrested. Unlike the story of Isabel Hicks (https://www.insidenova.com/news/crime_police/amber-alert-issued-for--year-old-believed-to-be/article_b29352f6-f783-11e9-bc13-efdd2d27d24f.html) who was still missing, along with the suspect (moms ex-boyfried, white, brown hair, brown eyes 5 feet 10 inches, weight 195lbs, in case you want to help find them) a description of both is definatley warranted.
