Suspect Arrested in Belle View Barber Shop Shootings

Police have charged an Annandale man with murder in connection with the shootings Wednesday at the Belle View Barber Shop that left one man dead and another wounded.

Hung T. Nguyen, 44, of 7846 Heritage Drive — pictured here — turned himself in at the Sully District Police Station around 11 p.m., officials said. Homicide detectives are continuing their investigation to determine if additional charges are appropriate.

Police from the Mount Vernon District say the gunman apparently entered the barber shop shortly after 2 p.m. Wednesday and fired several rounds, striking the two victims.

Le D. Hoang, 39, of 6346 Staghorn Court in Alexandria, was pronounced dead at the scene and a 38-year-old man was taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
