- The Washington Times - Tuesday, August 9, 2011

A Southeast D.C. man has died from injuries sustained in a fight over the weekend at a Fort Washington party, said Prince George's County police who are now investigating the death as a homicide.

Elijah Muhammad Turner, 22, of the 4000 block of 13th Street in Southeast died Monday morning after he was taken to a local hospital suffering severe head trauma, police said Tuesday.

Police think Mr. Turner was injured early Saturday at a party in the Piscataway Estates neighborhood in Fort Washington. Officers were dispatched to the 13000 block of Pendelton Street for a fight at a large party, county police said. When officers arrived they found the crowd had dispersed but were informed that Mr. Turner was admitted to a local hospital with injuries from an assault.

Mr. Turner died Monday morning from injuries he sustained during the fight, said police who are still investigating the incident.

No arrests have been made.
