Police arrested a 17-year-old in connection to a fatal shooting on Thanksgiving in the Springfield area.

The victim, Ever Deras-Borjas, 30, was found suffering from upper body trauma around 1:12 p.m. in the 6100 block of Dinwiddie Street. He died at an area hospital.

After identifying the teen as a suspect, detectives learned he had fled to North Carolina and he was taken into custody by the Buncombe County Sheriff’s Office on Friday.

Fairfax County authorities obtained petitions for murder and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. 

This is the 11th homicide in Fairfax County this year.

Victim specialists from the Major Crimes Bureau’s Victim Services Division were assigned to ensure that the family received appropriate resources and assistance.

I once stated that over half the murders in Northern Virginia are committed by illegal aliens, usually killing other illegal aliens. Of course I was called a racist for saying such a thing based on what I've seen and heard from friends who are cps, I think it is true. InsideNova will never tell us if it is true or not because it would be an inconvenient fact. Today's illegal immigrants are not the hard working Mexican workers that came to the US last century, they are much more violent.

Well, when you continue to make racist generalizations about people that have no basis in fact like you've done here, what do you expect? You quack like a duck, don't be surprised when you get called a duck. You and Brad below both do a lot of quacking.

So says the person with their head in the sand. Most of the illegals are categorized as white by Prince William Police. Race has nothing to do with it. As Martin Luther King Jr suggested I am judging these people by the content of their character, not the colour of their skin.

Does that mean that all natural born US citizen/criminals in PW County are actually good guys who dont deserve to be in jail? [whistling]

More illegals doing good deeds in the community again.

Irregardless if the 17yr old teen was illegal or not, he wouldn’t of murdered anyone if he wasn’t caught up in illegal alien gang lifestyle. Wether it’s MS-13 or some other gang. When the gangs know they can act with impunity and not have to worry about being deported crimes rates soar.

That being said I am curious how long he will get for the cold blooded murder of another human being? How much will it cost Virginia taxpayers to house and fees him for the next 20 years?

And who do you blame for gang members not having to worry about being deported buggy? If you want to cast blame, look at the Trump administration, where the deportation rate is much lower than during the first three years of the Obama administration. Meanwhile, Trump concentrates his Gestapo squad (aka ICE) on arresting persons who are undocumented but are contributing to our society and also cruelly separating families for his sadistic pleasure. But that's OK with you, right? The clueless continue to believe the con man.

If he is another illegal alien gang member, we need to ensure more border security so that active gang members are less likely to unlawfully enter the country. We need productive immigrants who enter legally, not criminals.
