    I was at the scene….law enforcement and the fire dept were told several times of a suspicious vehicle parked in the middle of main street illegally at the time of the incident only 40 yards from the scene but never investigated. Approximately 2 hours after the scene was cleared several passersby noticed the vehicle still hasn’t moved and was still running. At that time emergency services was called again because an infant was found to be in the car. This is an incredibly disturbing display by emergency services in Manassas!

    The approximately 3 month old boy received a diaper change and tons of love waiting for law enforcement to arrive!
