A 16-year-old boy was charged Wednesday with second-degree murder in the death of a man who was shot several times earlier this month, police said.
Metropolitan Police Department officials did not release the boy’s name Wednesday but said he was from Southeast D.C.
The boy is accused in the fatal shooting of 48-year-old Terrence Robinson of Southeast, who died Aug. 4. Robinson was found on the 2600 block of Douglas Road Southeast suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.
A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office said the boy is expected to be charged as an adult but was unable to immediately provide his name.
