"The victim did nothing wrong in this case. The victim showed up… This is her place of employment," Lt. Curry said. "This is a sad, tragic case. It really is. We have domestic violence detectives dedicated to these types of investigations here in Fairfax County to provide resources for those community members. The individuals involved are not from Fairfax County." 

The investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
