At one point, the victim appears to try and get away from the men and was unsuccessful. Once in the trunk, the suspects get back into the vehicle and quickly drive away.

More shots found to have been fired at homes on Hoffman Drive in Dale City

DALE CITY, Va. — Prince William police were called to a Dale City neighborhood for a third time this week to investigate shots fired into a house. 

Police were called back to the Hillendale section of Dale City on Tuesday night for another report of shots fired at a house. Police linked this new report, at a home on Hoffman Drive, to a similar incident that occurred on the same street over the weekend.

Press release: 

Shooting into a Residential DwellingOn October 18 at 7:36PM, officers responded to a residence located in the 4100 block of Hoffman Dr in Woodbridge (22193) to investigate a shots fired call. Multiple callers reported to police that gunshots were fired into a residence by a passing vehicle described as a newer model 2-door coupe. A bullet was recovered from the home, as well as, a shell casing from the roadway. Although a neighboring residence was struck during this incident, it is believed that this occurrence is related to a similar shots fired call which was reported on October 15 . Detectives are continuing their investigation into both incidents which do not appear to be random.

On Saturday, October 15, two homes — one on Keytone Road and another on nearby Hoffman Drive — was shot at. The following day, a bullet hole was reported by police to have been found at a home on Kirkdale Road.

No injuries have been reported in any of the shots fired incidents.
