    Residents of a neighborhood in Manassas, Virginia, were asked to avoid the area Thursday afternoon after two men were reported to be seen shooting at a passing car. 

    Manuel Gonzalez was arrested in Manassas, near the Potomac Mills Mall, on charges he shot at an occupied car and was in possession of a gun, though he is a felon, Manassas City Police said. 

    Officers were called to the 9600 block of Aspen Place about 1:30 p.m. after two men were seen shooting. The suspects then were seen running into a home on the block. 

    No injuries were reported.

    An anonymous source told police  there may have been high-powered rifles and automatic rifles in the home.

    Police, assisted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, found bullets in the area. Several cars were shot. Police said Friday the incident was related to a drug deal and shots were fired into the suspects' house as well.

    Several nearby schools were temporarily placed on modified lockdown. Students at eight schools -- Baldwin, Dean, Haydon, Mayfield, Metz, Round, Weems and Osbourn -- who live on the north side of the Georgetown South Community were asked to be picked up by their parents. 

    Manassas City Police are still seeking a second suspect, they said Friday.
