Fairfax County police say a domestic argument led to Friday’s double-shooting in a home in the 9200 block of Okla Drive in Fairfax.

A family member called police around 3:30 p.m.  Arriving officers say they found 51-year old Donna Pentek dead, apparently of a gunshot wound.  A 53-year old man, whose name has not been released, had also been shot.  He was taken to the hospital where his wound is now described as non-life-threatening.

Detectives are still working to put together a timeline of events surrounding the shootings.
