A 31-year-old man was fatally shot while walking in a Northeast D.C. neighborhood late Thursday night, police said.

Akinwole Olu Williams of Northeast was in the 1000 block of 44th Street in Deanwood about 11:40 p.m. when he was shot in the chest and killed, a Metropolitan Police Department spokesman said Friday.

No arrests have been made in the killing and a description of a suspect was not available, authorities said. The motive for the shooting is not known.

Catholic University officials said Friday that Mr. Williams had recently received his undergraduate degree from the university. Initially enrolling in 1999, Mr. Williams took a break from his studies but eventually resumed, receiving a bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary studies in December, said spokesman Victor Nakas.
