According to police, officers were called to the store at 6:43 p.m. by Harvey Coleman, of Arlington, after he reported to police he had shot someone in self-defense.

Officers found the victim, an adult man, inside the store suffering a gunshot wound to the upper body. Officers rendered aid until fire and rescue personnel arrived and transported the man to a nearby hospital.

The individual was hospitalized with injuries described as serious but non-life-threatening.


According to Fairfax police, detectives determined both men were patrons inside the store at the time of the incident.

“The victim had a brief interaction with Coleman, who then brandished a firearm,” police said in a statement. “The victim took a fighting stance and Coleman shot the man.”

Following several interviews and the review of surveillance footage, detectives have charged Coleman with malicious wounding and the use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. He was arrested and held on a secure bond.
