Was walking home tonight from the King Street Metro about 6:00 p.m. when I noticed a lot of police cars, both Metro Transit Police as well as Alexandria Police on the scene in the Kiss & Ride lot. A nice policeman tried to play it off as saying it was an accident on a cold and very slow night for police. I thought it was just a fender bender in the lot until I saw the fire department show up and police putting up the crime scene (caution) tape.
