I live in Longwood Knolls and I heard it too. It kept me up so I turned on the news to see what was going on. All they said was something like "Breaking news - a man was found shot dead at the Glory Days restaurant in Burke,VA, we'll have more on this as it develops.". I spent the next hour listening for more, but nothing. I woke up this morning and went online to find the story, and I found nothing. Not sure what's going on here.....

Something was going on at the Glory Days - police, ambulances and yellow tape around it. Someone was put into the ambulance. About 10 min later the helicopter started doing sweeps.

Anyone know what happened at Glory Days?

Hopefully it was some Braddock rivalry or something and not some crazy gunman on the loose.

What happend was there was an altercation at the POHICK basketball court. The 24 year old was a drug dealer who came to the court with a shotgun he then demanded the payment from the guy, the other man kicked the shotgun out his hands and then shot him. The other man at the court had a gun he then shot him several times. This isnt the first incident of a shooting at the basketball court, there was a Gang drive by there about 1 year ago. Between some Crips and Bloods. There you go.

Burke has its ghosts. The drive by last year between some rival gangs wasn't big because the news wasn't involved. A lot of things have happend at that basketball court. Its by the Pohick Library in Burke VA. there are a lot a gangmember s who are in the Burke Area they are older about 21-27 a lot moved there to get away from Alexandria Arlington Falls church areas but they all located in that Area of Burke. Does anyone remember the story about QUintell ALexander the gang member from L.A who recruited the kids in Burke? hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm makes you think. what is really going on in burke.
