D.C. man found fatally shot in Capitol Hill neighborhood
A 28-year-old man was found fatally shot in a parked car in the District’s Capitol Hill neighborhood early Monday.
Police responded at about 2:15 a.m. to the 1300 block of C Street in Northeast for a report of gunshots. When officers arrived, they found Jason Anthony Emma slumped over the steering wheel of a vehicle. He died at the scene.
“We do have some information that possibly two black male subjects were seen leaving the area of the shooting going eastbound on C Street,” said Cmdr. George Kucik, of the department’s Criminal Investigations Division. “We are looking for assistance from the public, if anyone was out there or saw or heard anything.”
Residents who live near the scene of the shooting — on a block populated by two churches, an apartment building and a cluster of row houses — described hearing six to eight gunshots.
“It just sends a chill through your bones,” said one woman as she walked down the block Monday.
“The investigation is very early on. We don’t have any definitive motive right now,” he said.
WJLA-TV (Channel 7) reported that police found Mr. Emma in a black Audi with Virginia license plates and that the car was still running with its headlights on.
Two men were fatally shot Saturday in Northeast, but police do not think the double homicide which happened about a mile away on the border of the Trinidad and Carver-Langston neighborhoods is related to Monday’s killing.
At about 1:45 a.m. Saturday, police were called to the 1100 block of Bladensburg Road in Northeast for a shooting and discovered Raymond Harris, 44, dead in the middle of the roadway. He had been shot multiple times. Nathaniel Beasley Jr., 69, was found inside a parked car suffering from multiple gunshot wounds as well. He was admitted to a hospital but died Sunday morning.
Police have not released any information on a motive or suspects in Saturday’s shooting either.
Monday’s shooting is the District’s 85th homicide this year.
