One teen dead, one injured in Alexandria shooting

One teen died and another was hospitalized after a shooting that took place at a residence off of Route 1, in the Alexandria portion of Fairfax County.

Fairfax County Police said officers responded to the 4300 block of Pembrook Village Drive at 7:55 p.m. on June 9, for a report of a shooting. Two teen boys, ages 14 and 16, were both discovered with gunshot wounds and transported to local hospitals. Police said the 14-year-old boy is currently listed as being in stable condition. The 16-year-old, Kevin Johnson, of Groveton Garden Road, died at the hospital. He had been shot in the upper body, according to police.

Police said there were several people in the home all known to each other and an 18-year-old discharged a weapon which struck the victims. On Thursday, police charged Leon Malik Johnson, 18, of the 4400 block of Pembrook Village Drive, with involuntary manslaughter.

Reston man shoots himself while police serve search warrant for guns

A Reston man who reported being shot last month while kayaking in Maryland has been hospitalized after shooting himself as police were executing a search warrant Thursday, according to police.

David Seafolk-Kopp, 56, of Lakeshore Crest Drive claimed to have been shot April 12 while “Stargazing” on Bodkin Creek in Pasadena, Md., according to the Maryland Natural Resource Police.

According to Natural Resource Police spokesman Candy Thomson, Seafolk-Kopp claimed he saw a red-laser sight on his chest and stomach pointed from the shoreline where some revelers were camped and partying around a bonfire. He claimed he was shot in the stomach immediately afterwards. Seafolk-Kopp was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore where a bullet was removed from his ribcage. No suspects were ever named in the case.

MNR Police are hoping to question Seafolk-Kopp, but he has not been charged, said Thomson.

“We are investigating whether Seafolk-Kopp also shot himself in the abdomen on April 12,” she said. “We ran a gunshot residue test from the April incident and it came back positive on his hands. The bullet retrieved from his ribs was either a .9mm, a .38 or a .357,” said Thomson. “We were seeking guns in his home that might match those calibers.”

Thomson said that while MNR Police were serving a search warrant at his home on Thursday, Seafolk-Kopp answered the door with what appeared to be fresh self-inflicted gunshot wounds to his jaw and torso. Fairfax County Police aided in executing the search warrant. “He was home and he was injured,” said FCPD spokesperson Lucy Caldwell. “He came to the door with those injuries.”

With the exception of machine guns, firearms are not registered in Virginia, but according to Thomson, Seafolk-Kopp has 31 guns registered in Maryland.

Oakton man pleads guilty to tax evasion, embezzlement

William P. Danielczyk Jr. of Oakton, pleaded guilty June 10 to one count of willful failure to collect and pay employment taxes for the quarter ending Sept. 30, 2010, and one count of theft or embezzlement from an employee benefit plan for the calendar year 2010, according to the Internal Revenue Service.

According to court documents, from March 2009 until December 2011, Danielczyk was the executive chairman of Innolog Holdings Corporation, a company that acquired Innovative Logistics Technology Inc. in March 2009. Innovative operated in the government services industry and provided technology-supported logistics services to the U.S. military and various defense organizations. The principal offices for Innovative and Innolog were located in McLean, and later in Fairfax.

According to court documents, for the third calendar quarter of 2009 through the last calendar quarter of 2011, Danielczyk was the person responsible for collecting, accounting for and paying appropriate payroll tax amounts to the IRS. Although payroll taxes were withheld from the wages of Innovative’s employees, Danielczyk failed to pay both the employee withholdings amounts and the employer’s matching portions to the IRS. The total tax loss for all quarters is $2.23 million, records state.

According to court documents, Innovative employees were permitted to contribute to a qualified pension plan that was administered by an asset custodian, and pursuant to this plan, Innovative withheld participants’ elected contribution amounts from their regular paychecks. The total sum of employee withholdings was to be sent to the asset custodian on a bi-weekly basis.

Although Danielczyk was the person responsible for authorizing payments to the asset custodian, he failed to send these payments. The total loss amount associated with this conduct, for 2009 through 2011, is $186,263, documents state.

Court records show that instead of paying Innovative’s employment taxes and remitting employee withholdings to the asset custodian of the company’s qualified pension plan, Danielczyk made purchases that included $505,871 for the use of a Washington, D.C., football stadium executive suite, and $40,000 for the sponsorship of a horse race in Virginia.

Sentencing in this case has been set for Sept. 11, 2014. For the employment tax charge, Danielczyk faces a statutory maximum sentence of five years in prison and a maximum fine of $250,000. Danielczyk faces a statutory maximum sentence of five years in prison and a fine of $250,000 for the theft from employee benefit plan charge.
