Diner drowns at riverside restaurant

An Arlington man drowned at Tim’s Rivershore restaurant early Saturday morning.

Police were called to the riverside eatery and bar, at 1510 Cherry Hill Road near Dumfries, at 1:32 a.m., after the man walked away from the group of people he had been with. When police arrived, the man had not been seen for at least an hour and a half, said Prince William police spokesman Jonathan Perok.

Members of the department’s marine unit and dive team found the man’s body in the water, floating near the restaurant, said Perok.

Shelton Carl Burstrom, 74, is the victim in the drowning, said Perok.

An autopsy is scheduled to be preformed this afternoon to determine the cause of death.

Police do not think his death is suspicious.
