The Fairfax County Police Department on March 29, 2023 continued to negotiate with an armed woman who barricaded herself inside a car along Richmond highway. Police say the standoff began about a day earlier.

Police in Virginia continued negotiations on Wednesday morning with an armed, barricaded woman nearly 24 hours after the standoff began along a Fairfax-area highway highway.

According to the Fairfax County Police Department, the standoff began about 11 a.m. Tuesday when the woman barricaded herself inside a car.

“We are still on scene of the barricade in the 7400 (block) of Richmond Hwy. A woman remains in a vehicle armed with a handgun,” the department tweeted about 9:30 a.m. Wednesday. “Richmond Hwy remains closed between Lockheed (Boulevard) and Boswell (Avenue).”

Crisis negotiators and special operations division members continue to work to peacefully resolve this barricade, the agency reported.
