Police said the husband and wife, who were retired military physicians, were shot and killed at point-blank range in the 800 block of Flint Street. The 911 dispatch received a call around 9:20 a.m. for a break-in. When officers arrived they found the couple suffering from gunshot wounds in the front yard. They tried to resuscitate them, but they were later pronounced dead.

“They did nothing wrong. They were tragically and horribly murdered in their neighborhood,” said Commander Ed O’Carroll, of FCPD Major Crimes.

Two other family members were inside the home when the shooting took place, but were not hurt.

Fairfax County Police are working with other local partners to solve the case.
