Alexandria police investigate fatal shooting of longtime transportation planner
A relative found 69-year-old Ronald Kirby fatally shot in his home Monday afternoon and police ruled his death a homicide.
No information was available about possible suspects.
Mr. Kirby was found dead inside his home in the 200 block of Elm Street around 12:30 p.m. Monday. Ms. Hildebrandt said the homicide occurred within a matter of hours from the time he was discovered. He had been shot multiple times.
In a statement released Tuesday, officials from the agency called Mr. Kirby a “trusted colleague and a dear friend.”
“Dr. Kirby, one of the region’s leading experts on transportation planning, was a key figure in all aspects of our work on regional planning and collaboration,” spokeswoman Jeanne Saddler said in a statement. “His deep knowledge and wise counsel assisted local, state and national officials in reaching consensus on the major transportation issues over the years.”
Prior to joining the agency, Mr. Kirby directed the transportation program at the Urban Institute. He was born in Adelaide, Australia, and received undergraduate and doctoral degrees from the University of Adelaide, South Australia.
