The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office has announced that Deputy First Class Camron Gentry, a three-year veteran of the LCSO, is scheduled to be released from Reston Hospital on Saturday Feb. 13, at 2 p.m. 

Gentry was seriously injured after he was shot multiple times on Jan. 2, while taking a suspect into custody for a larceny at the Walmart in the Dulles Crossing Plaza.  He was transported to Reston Hospital where he has remained receiving treatment for his serious injuries.  

“Deputy First Class Gentry continues to recover and is displaying the same bravery he took that night, as we were all once again reminded of the dangers of our chosen career, and nothing is ever routine. We welcome members of the community to join us to help show our support for Camron as he leaves Reston Hospital,” said Loudoun County Sheriff’s Mike Chapman.  

Members of the community can join the LCSO and other first responders behind the Medical Plaza (1800/1830 Town Center Drive) of Reston Hospital at 1:30 p.m. on Feb. 13, to help show support for Gentry.  

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office will have multiple vehicles escorting DFC Gentry through Loudoun County on his journey home. Residents may see law enforcement traffic from Reston Hospital to the Dulles Greenway and Rt. 7 in Loudoun County.  

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the community, law enforcement partners, first responders, and public safety organizations in Loudoun County and the region, for continued support since Jan. 2.
