Over the last several years, she had attended Cardozo High School in Northwest Washington and Northwestern High School in Hyattsville, Md., the outreach workers said.

The block where she lived, a small cul de sac in Prince George’s County, also was the scene of a fatal shooting in August of DYRS ward David Javon Hinson.

Prince George’s County police said Hinson, 20, of Northeast Washington, was fatally shot on Aug. 11 as he was driving at about 6 p.m. He traveled a few dozen feet before his automobile crashed into a tree. Police found him dead behind the wheel.

Also on Monday, three wards of DYRS were caught on surveillance cameras leaving the Washington Humane Society’s shelter in Northeast Washington with a 4-month-old pit bull named Ivan. DYRS sources told The Times on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the subject that the juveniles were at the agency’s headquarters on Wednesday.

Scott Giacoppo, a spokesman for the humane society, later confirmed for The Washington Times that Humane Society officials had located the dog.

The youths entered the shelter Monday posing as potential adopters. Once inside, the suspects took Ivan from his cage and escaped by breaking through a wooden fence behind the building, shelter officials said.
