Robert J. Davidson

Robert J. Davidson was a 22-year-old Centreville man who was fatally shot by 16-year-old Alexander D. Szymkowicz in a Fairfax parking lot on January 13, 1999.[1][2]

Davidson was the muscle in a scheme by recreational agricultural products salesman John P. Michaelangelo to steal $900 from a group of three youths which included Szymkowicz. When Davidson brandished a cigarette lighter shaped like a handgun in furtherance of the attempted rip-off, Szymkowicz reciprocated by brandishing a handgun shaped like a handgun and shot Davidson in the chest. Davidson was taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital, where he died.[1]
