7-Eleven clerk shoots at cars: Police

Some convenience store clerks are more rigorous than others about enforcing "No Loitering" rules, it seems.

Case in point: Fairfax City police said one 7-Eleven worker took his duties too far Thursday morning, firing at two cars in his store's parking lot.

Two cars, with five passengers, pulled into the lot of the 7-Eleven near the intersection of Jermantown Road and Route 50 at about 3 a.m., police said. Some of the passengers began some minor car repair.

While they waited, the clerk came outside and told them to leave, Fairfax City Sgt. Dan Grimm said. An argument followed, said Grimm, and the clerk "told the group that unless they left, he would shoot them."

One of the people called 911. The clerk then produced a gun, Grimm said, and all five people left the lot. The clerk then fired multiple rounds into the parked cars, according to Grimm, hitting a Honda Civic and a Ford Focus.

No people were hit, and the clerk climbed in his car and took off, Grimm said.

The suspect was arrested a few minutes later in Merrifield at the intersection of Lee
Highway and Gallows Road, Fairfax County Officer Bud Walker said.

Brian Andoli Otiende, 26, of the 10400 block of Viera Lane in Fairfax City, was charged with two counts of attempted malicious wounding and one count each of using a gun during a felony and maliciously shooting into an occupied vehicle.

In addition, Otiende was charged with two counts of carrying a concealed weapon by Fairfax County Police. Otiende was held without bond.

@dcjazzman, thanks for playing, but that would be Jermantown Road in Fairfax, VA. Perhaps you could apply yourself as a fact checker?
