The Alexandria Police Department responded to a spate of crimes over the weekend, including multiple reports of shots fired, a burglary, a robbery and an assault.

Police responded to reports of shots fired on the nights of Sept. 25 and 27, according to news releases. The incident on Sept. 25 occurred in the 1100 block of Queen Street, where multiple shots were fired, while the incident on Sunday night occurred in the 4300 block of Duke Street, according to news releases. There were no injuries in either incident.

These two incidents come after three consecutive nights of shots fired in the West End last week and similar reports in Old Town over the summer. APD will release a statement regarding the shootings later this week, according to APD spokesperson Lt. Courtney Ballantine.

APD is also investigating a felonious assault that occurred in the 5400 block of Sheffield Court on Saturday morning, as well as a pair of crimes that occurred early Sunday morning: a robbery in the 2500 block of North Van Dorn Street and a residential burglary/felonious assault in the 300 block of Hume Avenue.

In the latter incident, an unidentified suspect broke into a man’s Del Ray home and shot him once, resulting in non-life threatening injuries, according to ALXnow.

APD plans to release its annual year-to-date Part I crime data in the next few months, according to a recent APD announcement.
