There was a large police presence in the area, and several ambulances were parked in front of the residence. 

Police said the incident "does not appear to be random," and the person who pulled the trigger is still on the loose. 

"We are working very hard to identify the person that is responsible for this event," said Prince William County Assistant Chief of Police Kevin Hughart. "Based on the limited information that I know right now, it is one person that we are looking for. We do not have enough of a description or any other vehicle information to give you." 

"This part of the county is generally very quiet. It's a nice residential neighborhood, so this type of action that happened here is traumatic to everybody, including the police department, our community and everyone associated with the folks who live here," he continued. 

The motive for the shooting has not been determined. Assistant Chief Hughart is urging anyone with information that will help police solve this crime to come forward.
