FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. – A man from Woodbridge was shot and killed Sunday night in a shootout with police.

Fairfax County police said 21-year-old Nicholas Allen Kaelber, 21, of 2803 Wakewater Way in Woodbridge was shot about 11:20 p.m. Sunday.

That night, two officers saw two males acting strangely in the Mount Vernon area, near U.S. 1. The officers approached the two men and one fled, according to a statement from police.

The officers chased after the man who then took out a handgun and fired shots at the officers, police said. One officer returned fire and struck Kaelber. Afterward, he was then taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. The second suspect got away, police said.

In December, Kaelber appeared in a Manassas courtroom facing charges of marijuana possession, and possession of a concealed weapon.

Court records show the cases both marked as Nolle Prosequi, where prosecutors were unwilling to pursue the charges.
