CHANTILLY, Va. (CBSDC/AP) — Authorities have identified the two people who died in a shooting at a home in Chantilly as a veteran ATF agent and his wife.
Fairfax County police say 46-year-old Paul Parisi and his wife, 47-year-old Jannine Parisi, were found dead at their home early Wednesday morning. Police were called to the home in the 13400 block of Point Pleasant Drive just after 5 a.m. for a report of gunshots.
Police haven’t released details of the shooting, but they say it was domestic-related and there was no threat to public safety. Two teenage girls were inside the home and were not injured.
Paul Parisi had worked for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms since 1993. He was a special agent assigned to the Washington Field Division in the arson and explosives group.
Jannine Parisi was a physical education teacher at Franklin Middle School in Chantilly.
A neighbor told WNEW’s Kevin Patrick that there was an emergency response at the house a few months ago.
“I didn’t know there was any problems going on in that house until a couple of months ago when there was an ambulance and police officers,” said neighbor Jinnie Maluff. “I feel really bad about it because maybe we could have done something to be of more support.”
