This Week In Crime: Somewhat Predictable South Reston Shooting Brings Incredibly Predictable Racist Comments

Two men sitting outside a Reston apartment building were shot Monday afternoon.

Two men sitting outside an apartment complex in Reston were shot this afternoon, and police said they were searching for three men who ran away from the scene. Both victims were in surgery this evening and their conditions were unknown, Fairfax County police said.

The victims, whose names were not released, were sitting in a common area in the 2300 block of Freetown Court, just off Reston Parkway in the Hunters Woods section of Reston, about 12:25 p.m. Officer Eddy Azcarate, a Fairfax County police spokesman, said the two men were approached by three men, and that one of the men was armed and shot both victims.

The victims' were taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital. One of them was 20 years old, Azcarate said. The assailants were described as Hispanic men, Azcarate said, but he did not have any other details. Azcarate declined to say how many times the men were shot or whether the incident was gang-related.
What better excuse to bravely post anonymous comments about the incident on the Washington Post (and other) websites? Here's just a taste:
