McLean Residents Continue Push for Answers in Park Police Shooting

It’s been two years since the fatal shooting of a Tysons man by U.S. Park Police, and McLean residents want answers.

The FBI has been investigating the Nov. 17, 2017 shooting where two U.S. Park Police fired into a Jeep Grand Cherokee and hit Bijan Ghaisar, a 25-year-old.

In June, U.S. Senators joined the call for answers in the shooting.

Tonight (Wednesday), the McLean Citizens Association is set to discuss a draft of a resolution that would urge the Park Police and FBI “to disclose urgently the findings from their investigation, in the interest of transparency and accountability to our community.”

MCA made a similar effort last year to obtain new information, according to the draft resolution.

“The Park Service and FBI have disclosed little information about the shooting despite numerous requests from Mr. Ghaisar’s family, elected representatives in the U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives, state and local government representatives, the Washington Post, and our community,” the resolution says.

The MCA meeting is set to take place at 7:30 p.m. at the McLean Community Center.
