At approximately 10:51AM on Wednesday. Jan 4, Prince William County Police officers were dispatched to the residence after someone called the Public Safety Communications Center reporting they had been shot. The center also received multiple calls regarding a shooting in the area. A Town of Dumfries police officer arrived first on scene and located one of the victims outside in front of the home. Additional officers from Prince William County arrived and conducted a check inside the residence after receiving information about possibly more victims.

Once inside the home, officers located four additional victims in the basement area of the residence and provided immediate first aid until fire & rescue services were cleared to safely enter the home. One of the victims, a young child, was pronounced dead at the scene. The four other victims, ranging from 14 to 17 years of age, were transported to area hospitals with serious, life-threatening injuries.

During the investigation, officers quickly developed a person of interest, identified as the accused, and began an active search for his whereabouts. An officer on perimeter at a nearby business along Richmond Hwy observed an individual matching the suspect’s description and detained him without incident. The individual was ultimately identified as the accused and became uncooperative with investigators as to what led up to the shooting. Two firearms were recovered during the investigation. Ballistics testing will be conducted to confirm whether the firearms were used in the incident.

Preliminarily, the investigation has revealed the accused had been recently staying at the home on Milroy Dr and was in a relationship with one of the victims, the 17-year-old female juvenile. During an altercation at the residence, the accused is alleged to have shot the 17-year-old in front of the residence and the four other victims who were located inside the home. A 13-year-old male juvenile was in another area of the home and was uninjured during the encounter.

Four of the victims, including the decedent, age 3, and the unharmed juvenile, are siblings who live at the residence. The fifth victim, a 14-year-old male juvenile, also resided at the home and was unrelated to the other victims.

Following the investigation, the accused, identified as Kenyatta Lee OGLESBY, was arrested. Investigators are asking anyone who may have information to aid in this investigation, including video surveillance footage, to contact police. Virginia law prohibits law enforcement from disclosing the decedent’s identity due to their age. Additional information will be released when available. The investigation continues.
