Who shot Todd Sanders? No answer yet

Ten months after someone shot and injured Leesburg lawyer Todd Sanders as he worked late in his office, police say they’re still looking for the assailant.

A spokesman for the Leesburg police department said the investigation of the February incident is “very much ongoing.”

Sanders is a former Fairfax prosecutor who also worked for a time at the commonwealth’s attorney’s office in Loudoun County before beginning a private practice.  Media accounts of the shooting at his office in historic Leesburg included speculation that a former criminal defendant might have been trying to exact vengeance.

Officers are still pursuing leads, said public information officer Chris Jones.  “It’s not at all considered a cold investigation at this time,” Jones said.

Sanders denied any serious injury after the shooting.
