Police are searching for witnesses to a Sunday morning shooting in Dale City that left a young Woodbridge man dead.

Officers were called to the 4000 block of Westwind Drive at 6:09 a.m. after neighbors reported a large group of people gathered outside and gunshots ringing out.

Shortly after, all parties dispersed. As officers were at the scene investigating, they learned that a man was brought to an area hospital suffering from gunshot wounds, Prince William County police spokeswoman Renee Carr said.

The victim, identified as 18-year-old Michael Adom, died later as a result of his injuries. 

Detectives are actively investigating the incident to determine what led up to the shooting and would like to speak to anyone present during the altercation, Carr said.

Anyone with information regarding this homicide is asked to contact the Prince William County Police Department tipline at 703.792.7000 or submit a webtip to:

With Peter Newsham coming in as Chief, this murder is unlikely to be solved. It will be even less likely if the victim is a person of color (the article doesn't say), as Chief Newsham always put less priority on murders in SE DC. He concentrated on the less common murder of white liberals, although nobody has ever figured out who killed Seth Rich.

Hillary Clinton told him not to investigate that one.../S


It’s our founding fathers fault for writing the second amendment.

[beam] I remember we read news articles about this happening on a daily basis in DC and in Southern MD (namely PG County). It's a shame how so far downhill Dale "Sh*tty" has gone.

Dale Sh*ty.


Half the county’s population is sub-human trash. They don’t know any better.


Don’t put yourself down so hard. We know that about you but still try and appreciate your constant negativity.


More “progressive” success stories. Daily shootings and murders now in PWC.


And the world. What’s your point? Oh, wait. Once again you don’t have anything to contribute except your incessant negativity.


Stop The Count.....Stop The Count!
