Police identify teen fatally shot in Fairfax

A teen was fatally shot after an argument Saturday night outside an apartment complex in the Woodlawn area of Alexandria, Fairfax County police said.

Police identified the victim as Darlin Ariel Diaz Flores, 19, of Annandale.

Officers responded to a reported shooting at about 9:34 p.m. in the 8400 block of Graves Street after a community member heard gunfire and saw a person lying on the sidewalk, police said. When officers arrived, they found Diaz Flores with gunshot wounds. He was taken to a hospital, where he died a short time later.

Police said their initial investigation found that the shooting was sparked by an argument when Diaz Flores was with a group of friends outside of an apartment and there was a confrontation with a passerby.

Police are investigating.
