Fort Belvoir housing area standoff comes to successful conclusion without incident

An on-post domestic disturbance incident which began in the early morning hours today on Fort Belvoir, which escalated to a standoff with law enforcement, was brought to a successful conclusion with the suspect taken into custody this afternoon by Special Agents from the Department of the Army Criminal Investigation Division.

No individuals were injured during the roughly 12-hour engagement. CID wishes to thank our law enforcement partners, to include the FBI Washington Field Office's National Capital Response Squad, the Fairfax County Police Department, and the Fort Belvoir Department of Emergency Services for their critical support which was instrumental in bringing this situation to a peaceful conclusion. CID will continue to investigate as the lead law enforcement agency for this incident.

CID is responsible for conducting felony-level criminal investigations in which the Army is, or may be, a party of interest.
