Police suspect a 19-year-old Maryland man shot and killed a 17-year-old girl and wounded a 15-year-old boy in an Alexandria park before killing himself Sunday night.

Alexandria Police officers responded to a report of shots fired in All Veterans Park in the 200 block of N. Pickett Street at about 8:45 p.m. They found two victims who had been shot.

A 17-year-old Alexandria girl was pronounced dead at the scene. A 15-year-old Alexandria boy was taken to a hospital in serious but non-life-threatening injuries. He is listed in stable condition, police say.

Yerson Nunez Lopez, a 19-year-old Maryland resident who is suspected of shooting the two other teens, was found dead with self-inflicted injuries, according to a statement from Alexandria Police.


Police say the three teens knew each other and there is no connection to gangs or gang activity.

This is the sixth murder in Alexandria this year, police say.

This investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Detective Bikeramijt Gill at 703.746.6751
