A Northeast D.C. man was arrested on Tuesday in connection with the shooting of a transgender woman, Metropolitan Police Department officials said.

Darryl Willard, 20, was charged with assault with intent to kill while armed early Monday morning.

Police said the victim walked into the Seventh District police station on Alabama Avenue in Southeast around 1:50 a.m. Monday and told police she had been shot about a half-mile away from the station in the 2600 block of Savannah Street in Southeast.

She was shot in the neck and her wounds were not considered to be life-threatening. She was able to identify her attacker, police said.

Mr. Willard turned himself in on Tuesday.

Police said the shooting did not appear to be related to two earlier shootings this summer that targeted transgendered women.
