1 suspect arrested in deadly Virginia Denny’s shooting

Virginia News

MANASSAS, Va. (AP) — One man was arrested and charged Sunday in a fatal shooting and robbery at a northern Virginia restaurant, while a second suspect in the case remains at large, police said.

Prince William County Police said that Jordan Anderson, 22, of Manassas, was charged with one count of murder, along with malicious wounding and firearm charges. He was located in adjoining Fairfax County and was jailed without bond, police said.

Anderson is accused of killing a food delivery driver and wounding another man early Thursday at a Denny’s in Manassas.

Police said the other suspect — identified as Ryan Thomas Walker, 22, of Chesapeake Beach, Maryland — should be considered armed and dangerous. Walker is wanted for murder, malicious wounding and robbery in the same case, Prince William County Police said in a news release.

Police said forensic evidence collected at the crime scene led detectives to identify on Saturday the two suspects in the death of Yusuf Ozgur, 56, of Manassas. Ozgur was at the restaurant to pick up an order for DoorDash, a food delivery service. He died at a hospital from his injuries.

A second wounded man was hospitalized with serious injuries but is expected to survive. Police did not release his name but said he is from Culpeper County.

Police spokesman 1st Sgt. Jonathan Perok said police didn’t have information on any lawyer representing Anderson.

Before the suspects were identified, the FBI on Friday said it believed that the people who carried out the Denny’s robbery were also responsible for other robberies at a bowling alley, motel and convenience store in the Washington suburbs.
