Man dies after parking lot stabbing in Leesburg


LEESBURG, Va. (WUSA9) -- Leesburg Police are investigating at stabbing that happened at the 7-Eleven located at 22 Plaza Street and left one person dead early Saturday morning.

The victim has been identified as James R. Sealey, 22, of Montclair, N.J., police said.

At approximately 2:49 a.m., Leesburg Police say officers responded to a disturbance involving a large group of people in the parking lot of the 7-Eleven on Plaza Street NE. Police say officers found an adult male in the back seat of a car suffering from a wound to his upper leg.

"I go to that 7-11 and now I'm going to be like a little bit more hesitant to go in there," said Julia Tinker.

"Leesburg has a small town feel and there isn't a lot of crime. So to see something like this is very shocking, very out-of-the-norm," said Jeannie Derryberry.
