Beyond MoCo: Man Arrested Following Shooting at Tysons Corner Center

by MCS Staff

McLean Police District – Noah Settles, 22, of Washington, D.C. turned himself in last night at the Adult Detention Center in Fairfax. He was held without bond. Settles was wanted in connection to the June 18 shooting that occurred at Tysons Corner Center in McLean.

Per Fairfax County Police: Officers were called just before 3 p.m. for reports of shots fired inside the mall. When officers arrived, witnesses directed them to the second level where a fight broke out that led to a brandishing. The groups dispersed and re-engaged a short time later. This led to three rounds being discharged. Officers quickly began clearing the mall to protect against any threat and to assist those who had sheltered in place. Fortunately, no individuals were struck by the gunfire; however, three community members received medical attention for injuries sustained while fleeing the shopping center.

Detectives spoke to multiple witnesses and reviewed surveillance and cell phone footage. Detectives determined Settles brandished the firearm and later fired at the rival group near a second-floor kiosk. Both groups ran away after the shooting.

On Sunday, detectives obtained warrants for Settles for attempted malicious wounding, three counts of discharging a weapon into an occupied building and the use of a firearm in commission of a felony. Detectives from our Fugitive Track and Apprehension Unit worked with neighboring agencies and our Federal partners throughout the week to apprehend Settles. Detectives continue to investigate the circumstances of this shooting.
