3 killed, 3 others wounded in Manassas

By Jennifer Buske and Clarence Williams

Update:

Three people were killed and three others wounded Thursday night at two houses in Manassas, and police officials believed that one person was responsible.

Sgt. Tim Neumann, a police spokesman, said the violence was not believed to be random or to involve gangs.

"Basically it is related, but we're not sure what the relationshp is," Neumann said.

At about 7:20 p.m., police were called to a house in the 9200 block of Hood Street, in the Georgetown South neighborhood, Neumann said. Two men there were fatally shot and two other people were wounded, but no further details were released.

About 20 minutes later, police were called to the 9600 block of Brent Road, a couple of blocks away. A man was fatally shot in a house there, and a woman was wounded by a knife or machete, Neumann said. She was flown to Inova Fairfax Hospital.

The conditions of the other two injured people were not immediately clear.

Manassas police issued an alert, and Prince William County police stopped a vehicle and took a male "person of interest" into custody, Neumann said. No charges had been filed late Thursday night.

Georgetown South is a crime and drug ridden barrio. Much of the crime in Manassas would be eliminated if the area was condemned and razed. Immediately adjacent to the area is the Wellington subdivision of high priced homes. Georgetown South makes them very nervous and they have had to repeatedly contend with trespassing violations and vandalism. Tot lots were destroyed by vandalism and then not rebuilt. The Giant shopping center has to contend with rampant shoplifting. One large supermarket a mile down the road had to close because of the shoplifting. The violence is also getting out of hand. One trial just completed over a murder and there have been many more.

Of the joys of Multiculturalism! At least that's what the WP & NYTimes have been reporting all week.

I guess it easy to sweep reality under the rug!


LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- Police have arrested a man accused in a gruesome family home invasion that left two young brothers dead.

Antonio Cardenas Rico, 28, was arrested by Gwinnett County police early this morning and charged with two counts of murder.

He's accused of stabbing Edward Garcia, 1 and Bradley Garcia, 3 to death.

Hey "Champ" I am white, and I am just as irritated when crimes are committed by whites as by blacks. Problem is, for every one crime I read about being perpetrated by a white defendant, I read about 10 that were committed by a black defendant. You need to learn the difference between a racist thought "all blacks are scum and criminals" and one base on realism "more violent crimes in the DC metro area are committed by blacks than ANY other racial group"....and as for your comment that you wouldnt miss any whites who left the country, I say I believe you, as blacks seem to commit just as many violent crimes against other blacks as anyone else....why should whites had any respect for you as a race when as a race you have no racial pride?.....

Yep. Eric Harris, Dylan Klebold, and Timothy McVey, they sure represent such great need to end racial 'diversity' in America. I'm so glad we have those anglo-saxon conservative suburban folks looking out to keep us safe from all those minorities types perpetrating harm on all us white folk!

I drove by one of the houses. Except for a small piece of crime scene tape on the ground outside you would never know. Although the house seemed deserted. Probably because everybody in it is dead or in hospital.

Sure... let's compare murder rates between whiteys and darkeys... that'll be good for a laugh. While we're at it let's compare poverty, hunger and disease rates among nations predominately run by whiteys versus nations run predominately by darkeys... that'll give us another laugh. Or we could examine cities run by whiteys versus cities run by darkeys. And then you can get off whitey's internet and head back to the paradise of Mexico or the African continent whenever it pleases you.

Again the post is an EPIC fail at reporting! Had this Crime happened in DC or PG you would have had the names and pictures of the victims and suspects posted already, AND the reasons for the murders. I love reading the stupid @$$ comments about what race commits the most crime and the prospect of diversity. Who gives a RA about who murders who more or commits crime more. You shouldnt want it to happen in your community....period! But I see that the post caters to racists and bigots as the articles they post and the simple comments they allow. YMFTPCUBAGGERS!! LOL

You know you're a racist when: you point out problems in other communities, that don't affect you, but ignore the problems in your own community.

You're always on here espousing your racism on stories of Latinos and Blacks. But not a peep from you when the perp is a whitey.

Yup. This is totally the barrio. I used to do cable contract work and when you were on the bad side of the manager you got assigned these areas. I once saw a basement filled with about 30 illegals crammed in there. All of them looking drugged out. I could go on and on.

Interesting portrait of what sounds like a rather troubled area.

Thanks for your "citizen/resident beat" reporting. I mean that sincerely; the Post can't/won't fulfill that role in part because their staff tends to live in decent housing and they only venture into (and understand) the DC metro area's urban/suburban slums and rural wastelands only if they happen to be the most intrepid/hardcore Metro reporters.

Manassas city should be held accountable....how many murders this year? machete? sound like a issue fairfax had? Time for the police to do their job, when will manassas city admit to their citizens they do not have it under control...How many people need to be stabbed or cut with a machate? I think its time manassas pave over the dumbs, the iron gate, the west gate coverstone, gtown south, brentwood...we all live her lets bring to light the crimes in just this small area? and do you see more police out? NO do you still see the hoods roaming around at night YES, does your gas station sell baggies to put the crack in YES, IF your 7-11 or quuckie mart sell steel scrubing pads seperatly, you have a crack problem...
so do the math manassas
murders+tags+machetes+steel wool= incomptent police a criminal element taking the city over hood by hood...I think manassas citiens need to demand answer and accoutability from their police & Govt officials...or is the sex shop causing too much crime for them to handle in Old TOwn.....I live smack dab in the middle and the city is a HOOD now period!!

I'm guessing the murderer is an illegal alien. Georgetown South has been a rough neighborhood for several years, but within the last 10 years it has been overrun with illegals and they are not the hard-working kind. They are criminals/gang members with not ties to the community. I think Manassas should buy up all those houses and bulldoze them. (I am hispanic).
