Harvey Coleman, 32, arrested for shooting man after argument in Baileys Crossroads Food Star
A 33-year-old man has been charged with two felonies for the shooting that occurred Saturday evening inside the Food Star, 5521 Leesburg Pike in the Falls Church section of Fairfax County. Officers were called to the store at 6:43 p.m. by Harvey Coleman, of Arlington, after he reported to have shot someone in self-defense. Officers found the victim, an adult man, inside the store suffering a gunshot wound to the upper body. Officers rendered aid until fire and rescue personnel arrived and transported the man to a nearby hospital. The man remains hospitalized with injuries, now deemed not life threatening.
Detectives determined both men were patrons inside the store. The victim had a brief interaction with Coleman, who then brandished a firearm. The victim took a fighting stance and Coleman shot the man. No additional weapons were recovered from the scene. Following several interviews and the review of surveillance footage, detectives have charged Coleman with malicious wounding and the use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. He was arrested today and held on a secure bond. Coleman was in lawful possession of the firearm.
