A woman committed suicide there a couple of months ago. I'm not sure if this is the same woman they are talking about or not. Hopefully there haven't been two in the past two months.
Here's a link to the story:

The death of a woman at a Woodbridge firing range was a suicide, police have ruled.
The woman, who Prince William police refused to identify, shot herself at Shooter's Paradise on Monday, said police.
A manager at the firing range confirmed that the woman rented a gun, purchased ammunition and went inside the firing range where she took her own life.
The manager, who refused to be identified, said this was the first time something like this has happened at the Marumsco Plaza firing range.
The number of suicides in Prince William County has decreased in recent years.
Between 2000 and 2004, the number of suicides in the county has dropped 43 percent, according to the Virginia department of health.
In 2000, 32 people took their own lives in the county. Four years later, 18 people took their own lives.
The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) in Arlington graded Virginia in a nationwide analysis of mental health care systems.
Virginia received a grade of "D" for overall mental health services, recovery support, infrastructure and information access, according to the NAMI web site.
The organization advocated former Gov. Mark R. Warner's $460 million transformation initiative for the state's mental health system.
NAMI has a local chapter in the Prince William area and its Web site is nami-pw.org.
Its Web site provides an emergency number for suicide intervention, (800) 273-TALK, and other contact information.
