Community meeting in Alexandria, Virginia on recent homicide in the Braddock Road Metro neighborhood at Charles Houston Rec Center
Last night at the Charles Houston Recreation Center, hundreds of neighbors from the Braddock Road Metro neighborhood and across Alexandria, Virginia attended a community meeting led by the Alexandria Police Department (APD) that addressed the recent ‘shots fired’ calls, shootings and the first homicide of 2015.

APD called the meeting after Shakkan Elliott-Tibbs of Woodbridge was shot and killed last week in the 700 block of North Fayette Street, which is only a few blocks from where the meeting took place.

The meeting started out in the large meeting room but, organizers quickly realized a bigger room would be needed so they moved the meeting to the gymnasium. You can see more photos from the meeting at this link.
