This Week in Crime: Western-Style Gunslinging, Arlington Altercations, and Another Loudoun Runaway

As befits a street with an old-timey, vaguely western name, an unnamed gunslinger fired a gun inside a home on Barrel Cooper Court.

A man discharged a gun at a home in the 11800 block of Barrel Cooper Court around 11 p.m. on Saturday, July 17 during an altercation. The suspect fled the home. No one was injured. Police continue to investigate.
A Reston man was charged with assault after an altercation in Arlington.
On June 27 at 12:20 am, after a verbal argument, the victim was assaulted by a white male subject. The suspect was located by police. He was charged with Assault and Battery. He was given a $2,500 bond.
For the second time in as many months, a Loudoun County teenager who ran away from home was found... in Reston.
A 15-year-old Ashburn girl who went missing June 12 was found July 22 unharmed in Reston.

At the time, she had made contact with her family but had not returned home. When she was found, she was taken back to Loudoun County, police said.
What is the appeal of Reston to these krazy kids today? Growing up in Sterling and Ashburn must be pretty boring if our beige community is suddenly becoming Excitement Central for teen runaways.

This isn't really about Reston per se, but if you're a glutton for bad puns and painful pop culture references, please to be reading this county police press release. Consider yourselves warned.

Finally, a "tip jar" was stolen from an undisclosed business at the Hunters Woods Plaza, which is pretty low by any account.

    Did you know that the performers in the cat show are all Siamese kittens? In fact, they're going to be putting on their "Youth in Asia" show, unless somebody claims them soon.
