Police looking for rapper who allegedly first shots at mall

Fairfax County police are looking for a Washington, D.C., rap artist who allegedly fired several shots from a handgun inside Tysons Corner Center on June 18.

According to a police media briefing, the shooting occurred at 2:47 p.m. on a publicly accessible walkway area outside the mall near Macy’s.

The suspect, whom police identified as District of Columbia resident Noah Settles, allegedly had gotten into a fight with another group when he displayed a firearm and fired multiple rounds, police said. Both groups consisted of at least three people, authorities said.

Settles, who goes by the stage name “No Savage,” reportedly fled in a black Cadillac with D.C. registration GK0174, authorities said.

“We are not at a who-dunnit phase in this investigation,” said Fairfax County Police Chief Kevin Davis. “We already have names.”

The incident resulted in the mall’s evacuation and closure until 11 a.m. the next day. More than 20 people stayed on the scene to provide testimony to police, said Executive Deputy Police Chief Brian Reilly.

No one suffered gunshot wounds during the incident, but rescue personnel transported three people to a hospital for treatment of injuries they incurred while fleeing the shopping center, Reilly said.

Police recovered shell casings at the scene, which likely indicates the shooter used a semiautomatic weapon. Spent casings from revolvers must be removed manually.

Officers combed the entire mall looking for people who may have been injured in the incident and also those involved who might be hiding, “which is pretty normal for a situation like this,” Reilly said.

Authorities are seeking Settles on charges of attempted malicious wounding, using a firearm in the commission of a felony and three counts of discharging a weapon into an occupied building.

Police consider Settles to be armed and dangerous.
