8:30 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 17, 2013

DUMFRIES, Va. – Police are on the scene of a fatal shooting at the Cedar Knoll trailer park in Dumfries.

Neighbors said a woman was shot to death inside of her trailer home, which sits inside a small  park just off Washington Street and U.S. 1 near Dumfries Town Hall.

The victim is said to be a female and was shot about 3 a.m. Prince William police are investigating the incident but have yet to release details. Their efforts appear to be focused on trailer 16 here in the park, a blue trailer that has been roped off with police tape.

Roly Melgar, a neighbor who lives up the street from where the shooting took place, said he heard his dogs barking and then got up to to see a man screaming for help saying his girlfriend had been shot in the face. Melgar instantly knew it was his neighbor and he went outside to help him.

“He was screaming ‘what are you all doing… she’s in there dying,’ so I went to his house to help. When I got there, I could see her lying there… she wasn’t breathing… and her face seemed pretty messed up,” said Melgar.

It was apparent the victim had been shot several times, he added.

It’s unclear who pulled the trigger last night. The man who Melgar went to help, whom he called Shawn, told Melgar he did not hear anyone come inside the house, and that he woke to the sound of gunshots and found his girlfriend shot.

Neighbors who live next door to trailer 16 also heard the man outside screaming for help after the shooting. One woman likened gunshots to the sound of five firecrackers being set off at once.
