PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, Va. (WWBT) - Police have arrested a 15-year-old in connection with a double homicide at an apartment complex in Woodbridge.

On Sunday, May 15, just after 4 p.m., officers were called to the Woodbridge Station Apartments in the 1300 block of Mary’s Way to investigate the destruction of property. An apartment resident reported seeing a bullet hole in his ceiling, which appeared to come from the apartment above. Officers received no answer after performing a welfare check on the apartment downstairs, but maintenance opened the door for them.

Once authorities were inside, they found two men dead at the scene. Police say there were no signs of forced entry, additional injuries or property damage reported.
