OAKTON, Va. (WUSA) -- Two men are dead after an apparent murder/suicide in Oakton Wednesday night.
Officer Eddie Azcarate, spokesman for the Fairfax County Police Department, confirms officers discovered two gunshot victims inside a home at 3051 Trevor House Drive after responding to the location to investigate a shooting just after 7:00 p.m.
According to Officer Azcarate, an initial investigation has revealed the incident appears to be a murder/suicide that resulted from an argument between two house mates. Police believe Ihab R.
