Two cyclists riding south of Franklin Farms were menaced by a nostalgic bit of Americana:
Police are investigating two suspected shooting incidents that occurred within an hour of each other on June 1.Just remember, folks: when BB guns are outlawed, only 7-year-old outlaws will have BB guns.
County police from the Reston district station said around 8:47 p.m., a 47-year-old man and a 45-year-old woman were riding their bicycles in Reston near the intersection of Fairfax County Parkway and Rugby Road when they heard a series of noises.
Police said the woman then noticed a minor injury to her leg from something striking her.
Police said around 9:41 p.m. the same day, a 26-year-old man driving a 2006 passenger bus was driving on Lee Jackson Memorial Highway near Alder Woods Drive when his passenger window shattered. Police think the injury and damage in both cases was caused by a BB-style pellet.
