ARLINGTON, Va. - The Arlington County Police Department's Homicide/Robbery Unit is investigating a homicide and attempted murder that occurred in Arlington on September 22, 2008. An Arlington resident shot an Alexandria police officer before turning a weapon on himself. The suspect's wife was later found dead in their apartment.

Around 8 pm on Tuesday, two Alexandria City officers pulled over Robert K. Hui, 22, for erratic driving behavior. The suspect pulled to the shoulder of 1-395 northbound at Glebe Road in Arlington County. When the officers approached the vehicle, the suspect shot the officer standing at the passenger side of the vehicle. Police units responded to the area immediately. The suspect car, a silver Lexus sport utility vehicle, was found by officers on the left shoulder of I-395, prior to the Boundary Channel exit. Law enforcement set up a perimeter. When it was discovered that the driver was still in the car officers made a tactical approach. The suspect was found deceased inside the car from what appeared to be a self inflicted gunshot wound. Investigators responded to the suspect's residence in the 2000 block of Columbia Pike, and found his wife deceased inside. Sarah Tredop, 19, was found suffering from obvious gunshot wounds. The investigation is ongoing. The Alexandria Police officer is expected to make a full recovery. His ballistic vest stopped the bullet from causing any life threatening injuries. MEDIA CONTACT: Det.
