A Prince William County woman was fatally shot by her husband outside a Woodbridge Chick-fil-A restaurant Thursday morning after an ongoing domestic dispute, police said.
Police arrived at the fast-food restaurant just before 9 a.m. and found Alice Jenkins Everette, 48, of Dumfries dead in her silver Chrysler. She had been shot several times, police said.
Police have charged Daniel Lunie Everette, 52, of the 9100 block of Broken Oak Place in Burke with murder and use of a firearm in commission of a felony.
Prince William police spokesman Jonathan Perok said the couple was married but had separated. The incident happened in the restaurant's parking lot, and there were no other injuries, Perok said. He declined to say whether anything happened immediately before the shooting or how the two ended up at the restaurant.
Police said Daniel Everette fled the scene before officers arrived, but he turned himself in at a police station shortly after. He was being held without bond and was awaiting a court date.
The Chick-fil-A is just off Interstate 95 at 2425 Prince William Parkway and was open during the incident. Police blocked off the area for several hours Thursday as they questioned witnesses inside the restaurant. Several people approached the yellow police tape around the crime scene, trying to get a glimpse at bullet holes in the car, which remained in the parking lot.
Woodbridge resident Dennis Lagos was working at the Sunoco gas station next door when the shooting happened. He didn't see anything, he said, but he heard gunshots and ran outside.
"It's crazy and the first time something like this has happened here," he said. "We eat lunch there almost every day, but I don't think we will be doing that" this afternoon.
