Fairfax County Crime Solvers is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the person(s) responsible for firing a handgun outside in the Oakton area, which resulted in one bullet penetrating a home. Police were called to the home, located in the 9000 block of Oleander Avenue, on the morning of Tuesday, October 21, after the homeowners awoke and discovered a bullet had apparently been shot through their window. The bullet struck a framed photo hanging on the wall of a bedroom, shattering the glass. A woman was asleep in that room at the time of the incident. Detectives believe the incident occurred around 1:30 that morning. It appears the suspect(s) were on the Oakton High School football field shooting at the scoreboard. One of their bullets missed the scoreboard and entered the home located behind it on Oleander. No one was injured.
