Question of the Day
DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
Teen held in weekend slaying
A 15-year-old girl charged in the shooting death of another teen in Southeast made her first appearance in court, where a detective testified the shooting appeared to be an accident but that someone tried to cover up the crime.
The girl, whose name was withheld because of her age, wore an oversized blue shirt in court Monday but said nothing. A detective testified that the girl initially said the shot that killed 18-year-old Anacostia Senior High School student Gary Gordon on Sunday came from outside the apartment they were in at the 2600 block of Stanton Road in Southeast. She later acknowledged, however, that she had picked up a gun, removed the magazine, and thinking the gun was unloaded fired at Mr. Gordon.
The detective testified someone shot into the apartment to cover up the crime sometime after the shooting at about 2 p.m.
Subpoena power sought in Gray investigation
Mrs. Cheh, Ward 3 Democrat and chairman of the Committee on Government Operations and the Environment, has scheduled a March 28 hearing on the subject.
Mrs. Cheh said her committee has thus far received the full cooperation of the mayor’s office and that she did not expect the committee to have to use all of its investigative powers.
“Nevertheless, there are witnesses who have been invited to testify who are not employed by the District government, and who may be unwilling to appear before the committee without a subpoena,” she said.
