    An Alexandria, Virginia, man was shot and killed early Saturday morning.

    Police responded to the 1000 block of First Street around 3:30 a.m. Saturday and found a man who had been shot in the upper body. The victim, Saquan Hall, 23, of Alexandria, was taken to the hospital, where he died about three hours later.

    This is the fourth homicide in Alexandria this year, according to police. 

    Neighbors said they heard multiple gunshots go off overnight.

    "I saw a guy got shot and people was hollering and crying and everything, but what touched my heart the most was the mother, when she came she said, 'Where's my son?' Because I'm a mother and I have children, my heart just goes out for the family. The mother and her family," one woman who lives nearby told News4.

    A small memorial made of balloons and flowers was placed near the murder scene.

    The Alexandria Police Department said it will hold a public meeting at Charles Recreation Center on Wednesday, July 6 at 6:30 p.m. to address community concerns about the homicide.
