INCIDENT UPDATE: Nathaniel Haldenstein, 24, of Herndon, VA, has been arrested and charged with Second Degree Murder.

Shortly before 5:00 PM on Sunday, July 18, 2021, Herndon Police received a call of a request for a welfare check for Mr. Haldenstein. Officers cleared the scene after the initial call but returned around 7:30 PM, after another call prompted a follow-up welfare check.

While speaking with Haldenstein, he made comments that prompted officers to check one of the bedrooms, where officers discovered one male victim deceased. Haldenstein was transported to Reston Hospital for treatment of minor injuries. Once released from the hospital, Haldenstein was transported to HPD headquarters, where he was interviewed by detectives.

Once the interview was concluded, Haldenstein was transported to Fairfax County Adult Detention Center where he was charged with Second Degree Murder. He is currently being held without bond.

Important announcement regarding tonightโ€™s Friday Night Liveโ€ฆ

The Town of Herndon has made the difficult decision to cancel Friday Night Live for tonight, July 2, 2021. This was not an easy decision to make, however, a funeral for three of our beloved community members who lost their lives through a horrific tragedy is being held in the downtown area at the same time.

Due to tremendous community interest and support for the family while they grieve and heal, many resources downtown could become overextended, to include available parking and public safety resources. Please understand that this decision was made with the best interest and safety of our community in mind.
