MPD’s 3rd district listserv reports that there was a murder on Georgia Ave and Gresham Place at approximately 6 pm tonight. According to MPD a group of males got in a fight, and one of the males sustained injuries that required medical care. He died at the hospital from his injuries.
It’s not known what injuries the victim sustained or if this was gang-related. Let’s hope MPD continues their track record of making speedy arrests following violent incidents on our streets.
UPDATE: Jim Graham, via PoP, notifies us that the murder on Georgia and Gresham Place was a stabbing. Additionally, there was another shooting on the 1300 block of Columbia Road last night, where an innocent bystander was shot during a gun fight. The bystander’s injuries do not seem to be life threatening (she was shot in the leg after a bullet penetrated the car she was sitting in). This is following Paul Jones’s murder on that block last month.
UPDATE 2: WaPo identifies the victim as Chiagbanwe Ukaoma, 22.
