An adult male is dead after being shot on the 1000 block of Montgomery St. around noon Wednesday.

Officers from the Alexandria Police Department responded to the area in North Old Town at around 12:57 p.m. June 8 after reports of a felonious assault. Police spokeswoman Crystal Nosal said incidents such as those are reported as felonious assaults until investigators determine the cause.

Nosal said the victim was transported to a local hospital, but police announced he had succumbed to his injuries just before 2 p.m. the same day. Police said the man was in his 20s, and his identity will be released when his next of kin are informed.

As a precaution, all Alexandria City Public Schools buildings and the central office went on lock-in due to police activity at 12:44 p.m. The lock-in was lifted at 1:44 p.m.

The slaying was the third homicide in the city this year. The first took place in April, when Melaku Abraha was assaulted and robbed on the 200 block of S. Alfred St. and later died of his injuries. In May, Shakeel Baldon, 43, was stabbed on Lincolnia Road and died from his injuries in the hospital.

Police announced April 12 that George McGee II, 22, of Capitol Heights, Md., was charged in connection with the murder of Abraha.
