A 21-year-old man was fatally shot Thursday night in Fairfax County, and a suspect has been arrested and charged, police said.

The incident happened about 7:30 p.m. in the 10100 block of Colvin Run Road at a commercial complex in Great Falls.

Fairfax County Police said those involved in the shooting knew each other.
