Authorities say a man was shot in a Faifax County store by another man who claims he fired his weapon in self-defense.
Officers responded to the Food Star at 5521 Leesburg Pike in Virginia at around 6:43 p.m. Saturday. Fairfax County police say the victim was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Police said the shooter is with officers and detectives are currently investigating.
The gunfire erupted in a very busy area of Bailey’s Crossroads, around a lot of stores and restaurants. It's not the first time in recent months that a violent crime has happened in this neighborhood.
Back in April, at the Target just down the street from the Food Star, an employee was arrested for allegedly stabbing and killing his coworker in the parking garage.
There is no known connection between that case and the one at the Food Star.
