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.

Gun, bow and arrow used to shoot at Stafford homes

Stafford authorities are investigating two separate shooting into occupied dwellings calls.

One of the calls involves a gun and the other a bow and arrow.

From Stafford sheriff’s spokeswoman MC Moncure:

On October 10, 2016 two separate incidents occurred involving weapons fired into dwellings. At approximately 3 p.m. dispatch received a call reporting that a round from a weapon had just been fired into a home on Sequester Drive.

The round had passed through a double-pane window in the family room and lodged in the drywall. When Deputy K.A. Lawrence arrived at the residence she was advised that the homeowner heard shooting for approximately thirty minutes before the incident.

The homeowner added that hearing gunfire, in this more rural part of the county, is not unusual. After interviewing the resident, Deputy Lawrence began to examine the physical evidence and recovered the bullet from the wall. With the assistance of other patrol units, the neighborhood was canvassed to determine what others may have heard or observed.

The next call came in from the Widewater area

Later that day at approximately 6 p.m. a homeowner from the Widewater area of the county called dispatch to report an arrow had been shot into her home and was lodged in the wall of a spare bedroom.

Deputy J.J. Brunofski responded to the residence on Viking Lane. The homeowner reported that the previous night a loud thud was heard between the hours of 6:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. The noise was disregarded but the next day an arrow was discovered to be lodged in the wall of the home beside the porch. The homeowner subsequently called the Sheriff’s Office.

The arrow has a green and white fin and was shot from an Easton Magnum Crossbow. Deputy Brunofski also canvassed the neighbors to learn what they may have witnessed.

At this time the Sheriff’s Office is still pursing leads. Anyone with information on either case is encouraged to call the Sheriff’s Office 540-658-4400.

Moncure told Potomac Local the investigating deputy was familiar with the type of arrow used and was able to match it to the crossbow suspected to have been used in the incident on Viking Lane.
