Police said there were “several celebrations taking place at the lounge,” which is along Columbia Pike near Leesburg Pike in the Bailey’s Crossroads area. “Police believe someone has vital information about the shooting,” Fairfax County Police said in a statement.
Police identified the victim as Darnell Rashard Ford of Capitol Heights, Md. The shooting occurred shortly after 2 a.m., when Ford was in a parking lot next to the lounge, police said.
“Detectives do not believe this is a random act,” police said, “and therefore there is no apparent, overt threat to public safety.”
