UPDATE: Lorton Teen Charged with Murdering Reston Couple
Fair Oaks Police District – Overnight, our homicide detectives obtained petitions charging a 17-year-old Lorton boy with the murders of Scott Fricker and his wife, Buckley Kuhn-Fricker. The suspect was the third person shot at the scene of yesterday’s double murder in the 2600 block of Black Fir Court in Reston. His injuries were self-inflicted and he remains in the hospital in life-threatening condition. He is under police guard.
The preliminary investigation determined the suspect, who knows the residents of the home, got inside and was then confronted by the couple. The suspect shot them both and then himself.
Four other family members who were home at the time of the shooting were not hurt. Our Victim Services Section has been assisting them as needed. Our Crime Scene Section will continue to process and document the crime scene today.
The petitions will be served on the suspect at a time yet to be determined, depending on his medical condition. His identity is not being revealed due to his age.
As detectives continue to investigate this double homicide, we ask anyone with information to please call our non-emergency line at 703-691-2131.
