A man and a 16-year-old girl were struck during a shooting around 4 a.m. in the 4500 block of Benning Road Northeast, near the Benning Road Metro Station. The man, identified as 24-year-old Stephon Emmanuel Way of Upper Marlboro, died from his injuries at a local hospital. The girl was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not considered life threatening. The two people were inside a car when they were shot, MPD spokesman Officer Hugh Carew said.

No one has been arrested in connection with either of the homicides.
