The suspect was reportedly be seen on surveillance video damaging an exterior door to gain entry to the school before heading toward the teacher's lounge.

Authorities searched the school, but found no other subjects and observed nothing suspicious. No weapons were found on the suspect.

Brow was being held Monday morning at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center pending a bond review.

I've been in this area for 10 years and it's gone downhill even in this short a period of time. There is almost ZERO police presence which could account for Sterling Park having a higher crime rate than it's neighboring areas (Cascades, Dulles, Ashburn). A coworker lives in Ashburn and every time I visit I see at least two patrol cars somewhere along the route, not responding mind you, but just patrolling. Where I live we have a 25 MPH "enhanced" speed zone which is never enforced so people travel at 60 and occasionally race down a residential street with kids at many houses. A few speed bumps would solve it but they don't want to spend money on this area.

Actually SEEING police patrol vehicles out and about could help to reduce the crime in the area but I suppose the county gets more in property taxes from the affluent areas so they pay them more attention.

It's only going to get worse.


Google this guy. He's bad news.


I tried, got nothing. What do you know?


Gotta luv those orange jumpsuits......why was he heading towards the teachers lounge? That's scary.
