3 killed, 4 wounded Sunday in three D.C. shootings
Question of the Day
Three people were killed in three separate shootings in the District on Sunday that injured another four people and brought the city’s homicide total up to 67, compared with 45 killings at this time last year, according to the Metropolitan Police Department.
Two men were killed and a teenager injured in a shooting early Sunday at North Capitol and T streets. The three victims were found inside a vehicle around 1:20 a.m.
Donchell Thomas, 21, of Montgomery Village died shortly after being taken to a hospital. Police announced Sunday night that 20-year-old Derek Price of District Heights also died from his injuries.
Police did not provide information on the condition of the 17-year-old surviving victim.
Police arrested 36-year-old Jimmie Fleming of Northwest and charged him with two counts of first-degree murder and one count of assault with intent to kill.
Another shooting that injured three people was reported Sunday night several blocks from the site where the three men were found shot in the car.
Police said that shooting took place around 9 p.m. outside the Harry Thomas Sr. Recreation Center at 1743 Lincoln Road in Northeast.
One person was shot in the leg, another was grazed by a bullet, and a third was not hit by gunfire but suffered injuries from fragments of ricocheting debris, police said. Police didn’t have a suspect description, and no one has been arrested.
An hour later on the other side of the city, a man was fatally shot in Southeast.
Officers found Delonte Hemphill, 22, of Southeast on the steps in front of a building in the 3500 block of 6th Street Southeast. He was taken to a hospital where he died.
Police have not made any arrests in the case.
