A woman was shot to death overnight in Chantilly during what investigators believe was a domestic dispute, Fairfax County police reported.
The woman's husband, who was in the house when police arrived, was taken into custody.
Officer Bud Walker said police were called to a single-family home in the 13800 block of Rembrandt Way about 3 a.m. Friday for a report of a shooting. They found the woman dead inside the house, apparently from at least one gunshot wound.
Her husband was immediately taken into custody, Walker said.
Based on the preliminary police investigation, detectives believe the shooting stemmed from an argument between the man and the woman, Walker said. Neither of their names were released.
