Two teachers shot at daycare

SPRINGFIELD, VA – An unfortunate incident erupted in a northern Virginia kindergarten where two teachers were victimized by gunfire. The person alleged with the crime has been detained by the authorities.

The Fairfax County Police Department conveyed information on Wednesday, stating the teachers were rushed to nearby medical facilities dealing with injuries, although none appeared life-threatening.

In a press briefing held in the afternoon, Deputy Chief Brooke Wright assured the public that all children present during the incident were unharmed and had safely been handed over to their parents or guardians.

Upon receiving a distress call around 2:15 PM related to the incident at the KinderCare site in Springfield, officers were dispatched promptly to the scene on Bauer Drive, informed Wright.

Law enforcement has identified the main suspect as Julio Pascual Sejas, a 41-year-old man from Arlington. Wright appealed to citizens for any information on Sejas’s whereabouts. Shortly after, by 6:30 PM, detectives had tracked and apprehended him at Dulles International Airport.

Wright declined to elaborate on whether the victims were personally connected with Sejas, but the suspect was reportedly seeking a woman with whom he had previous ties. Wright added that Sejas brandished a firearm, firing three shots through the closed front door when denied entry.

Despite the unsettling incident involving gunfire and over 70 children present, Wright asserted that the kids remained uninformed about the distressing events that had unfolded.

Sejas, the presumed perpetrator, is facing an array of charges that include two instances of aggravated malicious wounding and three accounts of discharging his firearm at an educational institution.
