After a fatal shooting at an apartment complex in Hybla Valley, Virginia, an unnamed man stepped in to detain the suspect Francisco Juares, 22, until police arrived.

The victim D’Mari Norris, 21, was shot multiple times, transported to the hospital and later died of his injuries. When police arrived, the suspected shooter was being held down by the good Samaritan. Police arrested Francisco and charged him with murder.. An investigation of the incident is ongoing.
Fairfax County Police Department spokeswoman Katherine Hayek says they’re grateful for the good Samaritan’s assistance. They also say that they’re considering an award for the man who has asked that he not be publicly identified.
