Couple in Fairfax shooting were estranged

Team Radio Marketing Group - February 24, 2017 8:04 am

On Thursday morning, Teresa Robertson of Fairfax was fatally shot by her estranged husband Kenneth Ray Robertson.

Investigation into the fatal shooting revealed the Robertsons were married, but Teresa Robertson had recently filed for a divorce. It was also determined that a protective order was obtained and served to Kenneth Robertson on Teresa’s behalf earlier this month.

About 8 a.m., a friend gave Kenneth Robertson a ride to his wife’s business in downtown Fairfax. He went into the building and shot his wife. She then ran from the building and collapsed onto the street.

Kenneth Robertson went to City Hall, where he instructed employees to contact the Fairfax Police Chief, David Bradley. Bradley said he saw Teresa Robertson lying on the ground and pulled around the building.

At that time, Kenneth Robertson exited City Hall, screaming, and fired two rounds at Bradley. Kenneth Robertson raised his gun in the direction of a second police officer that responded to the scene and Chief Bradley then shot the suspect.

Teresa Robertson was pronounced dead at the scene. Kenneth Robertson was transported to the Fairfax Hospital where he later died, officials said.
