Police responded to this intersection in the Mount Vernon district of Fairfax County last night and found a man shot and killed.

Police detectives in Fairfax County are investigating a homicide. The victim was found dead overnight near a vehicle after suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. 

Neighbors at a sprawling Sequoyah apartment complex in Hybla Valley called the police last night to complain about noise from a revving engine. When officers arrived here at the edge of Mount Vernon Woods Park, they discovered a man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The 47-year-old man was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead. 

Police have yet to identify the man because they are still tracking down next of kin.
