A 22-year-old man was found dead in his driveway around 10 p.m. Saturday, June 7 in the 6600 block of Paper Birch Drive. The victim, Faridullah Abbasi, had apparently come home, was confronted by someone and was subsequently shot in the upper body. Neighbors heard gunshots, saw the victim lying in his driveway and called police.
The victim was flown to Inova Fairfax Hospital where he was later pronounced dead. An autopsy will be conducted this week.
No suspect information has been released.
This is the ninth homicide in Fairfax County in 2008.
