It appears someone was getting a little too "into character" on Halloween in Fairfax City.

On Halloween Day, around 10:20 a.m., a 41-year-old resident was working on his car in his driveway at home, near Rust Road and Westmore Drive, when he was reportedly "shot" in the stomach by someone firing a weapon at him.

The man told police he saw an unknown young man kneel down, point a weapon at him and shoot, from a distance away. The victim stated he was "struck in the stomach," and that the suspect then fled on foot.

Police searched the area but did not find the suspect. 

An initial investigation determined the weapon was some sort of airsoft-style gun.

The victim sustained minor injuries, but did not require medical attention.

The case is being further investigated by the Patrol Division.
