Virginia Couple Fatally Shot by Neo-Nazi Teen

A Virginia couple was found fatally shot in their home on Friday, and a 17-year-old, who is in the hospital with self-inflicted gunshot wounds, is being charged with their deaths.

The couple, husband Scott Fricker, 48, and wife Buckley Kuhn-Fricker, 43, of Reston, were found dead early Friday morning, according to the Fairfax County Police Department.

Authorities did not identify the teen but said he was from nearby Lorton and knew the victims. His injuries are life-threatening, the police said.

“The preliminary investigation determined the suspect, who knows the residents of the home, got inside and was then confronted by the couple. The suspect shot them both and then himself,” Fairfax County police said in a press release, adding that four other family members were home at the time and were not injured in the shooting.

It’s not clear what the rapport was between the suspect and the victims. The Washington Post, citing relatives and friends, reported he was the boyfriend of the couple’s 16-year-old daughter.

The mother of one of the victims told NBC Washington that in recent days, the couple had discovered that their daughter’s boyfriend was an alleged Nazi supporter.

“My daughter and her husband found out about a lot of the Nazi stuff just this past week, and they forbid their daughter to see him again,” Janet Kuhn, the mother of Buckley Kuhn-Fricker, told NBC Washington. But she did not confirm that the boyfriend was the suspect in the investigation.
