A woman was fatally shot early Thursday in a Dumfries, Va., trailer park, the second homicide in two days in Prince William County, police said.
Prince William County police also announced Thursday that they had arrested two men in the earlier killing but are still looking for a third suspect.
The woman killed Thursday was not identified, but police said she was fatally shot at about 3:30 a.m. at a trailer park home in the 17600 block of Washington Street. Officers responded for the sound of gunshots at the address and found the woman’s body. She had been shot multiple times, reportedly after answering the door and getting into an argument with someone.
Officer Perok said police had not received any prior calls Wednesday night from the home where the woman was found.
In the year’s first homicide, officers were called to the 15000 block of Cardin Place in Woodbridge, Va., on Tuesday evening after a man was found dead in the middle of the street. Investigators determined that Barbaro Lupe Alonso-Iraola, 47, was killed and then dumped at the location by two men in a white van. Mr. Alonso-Iraola had suffered trauma to the face from both a blunt object and a knife, according to police.
Police arrested two men Wednesday.
Juan Carlos Flores, 25, is believed to have been one of the two men seen dumping Mr. Alonso-Iraola’s body and has been charged with first-degree murder. A second man, Jose Miguel Diaz, 28, was charged as an accessory to murder but is not believed to have participated in the killing. Police said Mr. Diaz owned the van that Mr. Flores used without his permission to transport the body. However, police said he is not the second man seen moving the body, and police are still looking for that third person.
The two homicides, which occurred about 6 miles apart, are not believed to be related, Officer Perok said. Prince William County police investigated only three homicides each in 2012 and 2011. Nine homicides were reported in 2010.
