The Alexandria Police Department is investigating the second homicide in the city this year after a man died early Friday morning after being stabbed on Lincolnia Road on May 5.
Officers responded to the 6100 block of Lincolnia Road at around 9:36 p.m. after reports of a felonious assault in the area near Landmark Mall. Police said the victim was discovered suffering from upper body trauma.
He was transported to the hospital, where he later died. The victim’s identity is being withheld pending notification of next of kin. The investigation is ongoing.
The slaying was the second in the city this year. The first took place last month, when Melaku Abraha was assaulted and robbed on the 200 block of S. Alfred St. and later died of his injuries.
Police announced April 12 that George McGee II, 22, of Capitol Heights, Md., was charged in connection with the murder.
Anyone with information about this investigation is asked to contact Sergeant Dave Cutting with the Alexandria Police Department at 703-746-6627.
