The slaying last month of an Alexandria woman who was shot when she opened her front door appears to be linked to two other unsolved killings in the city, police said Thursday, leaving residents fearful and wondering if an unknown killer has been striking their community for years.
Alexandria police said Thursday that the fatal shooting of a music teacher last month and the killing last year of a regional planning official "appear to be linked" to the decade-old unsolved slaying of the wife of the city's former sheriff.
A woman was shot and killed in her home Thursday and another woman was injured after a man knocked on the door and fired a gun at them.
The D.C. area's increasingly high-end neighborhoods do not provide a haven from gang violence, police department officials say.
Relatives, friends, and a few hundred unofficial family members turned out in Old Town Alexandria on Sunday to support a police officer critically injured in the line of duty.
"The similarities and unusual nature of all three shootings occurring in Alexandria require the police department to consider the possibility that all the cases are linked together," Police Chief Earl Cook said at the time.
