One man dead, two wounded in domestic incident in Chantilly, police say

One man died and two others were seriously wounded in a domestic incident inside a Chantilly home Tuesday morning, Fairfax County police said.

Officers went to a single-family residence in the 4100 block of Travers Court about 11:20 a.m. to investigate a report of an “unknown situation,” police said.

When they arrived, they found three men suffering from “significant injuries,” police said. The men were transported to hospitals, and one later died.

A police spokeswoman, Officer Shelley Broderick, said two of the men suffered wounds consistent with stabbing, but she could not say whether the dead man was one of them.

She said the medical examiner’s office would determine the cause of death.

Broderick said police were still working to identify the men and she did not have information on what sparked the incident. She said two young children and other adults were home at the time of the incident, but were not involved and not injured. Detectives were questioning them.

Neighbor Lee Sattarzadeh said he witnessed the aftermath of the incident.

“I saw three people taken out on stretchers,” Sattarzadeh said. “One had blood on his feet.”

Neighbors who could be reached knew little about the occupants of the home where the incident occurred.

Family members of the occupants did not return calls for comment.

Police closed off a portion of Travers Court while they investigated Tuesday afternoon. The front door of the red-brick home, which has a two-car garage, stood open.
