Police: McLean Resident Shot at Fleeing Car Thieves

Fairfax County police said a McLean resident grabbed his gun and shot at the suspected thieves driving out of his garage in his car.

Around 1:30 a.m. on Sunday (Oct.6 ), two men entered a garage in the 1400 block of Woodhurst Blvd near Wolf Trap and stole a 2006 Audi A6, police said.

The homeowner heard the garage door open, armed himself and went to investigate.

“He saw the car driving away and discharged one round from his firearm toward the car,” police said.

In a separate incident later that same day, a man allegedly stole two women’s purses when they were getting into their car after shopping in the 2000 block of International Drive.

“A man opened the back door and tried to steal their purses,” police said. “The victim grabbed a hold of her purse and a struggle ensued.”

The man got away with the purse. The woman wasn’t injured.
