Two other homicides also were reported in the region over the holiday weekend.

Garrett Armand White, 25, of the District was found lying in the 5400 block of Georgia Avenue Northwest suffering from what police called a “laceration” at around 3:35 a.m. Sunday. He was taken to a local hospital, where he died, Metropolitan Police said.

Jimmie Lee Hunter, 34, of Temple Hills was fatally shot Friday night outside Frank’s Tavern in Capitol Heights, Prince George’s police said. Officers were called to the liquor store in the 1700 block of Kenilworth Avenue around 7:25 p.m. for a report of a shooting. Mr. Hunter, of the 3700 block of Gull Road, died from his wounds at a local hospital.

Police sources said Mr. Hunter had been talking to women in a sport utility vehicle outside the liquor store when he was approached by two people on bicycles who shot him and fled into the District.

Police in both jurisdictions are continuing to investigate all seven homicides and have yet to make any arrests. The slayings are not thought to be related.
