Police arrest suspects in two Northeast D.C. slayings

D.C. police arrested suspects Wednesday in connection with two recent Northeast Washington homicides.

Police arrested Northwest Washington resident Stephen Deon Barnes, 22, in the Dec. 10 fatal shooting of Stephon Emmanuel Way, 24. They say Barnes shot Way and a juvenile female in the 4500 block of Benning Road NE. Both were transported to an area hospital, where Way died. Barnes is charged with felony murder.

In the other case, Southeast Washington resident Terry Terrell Johnson, 22, was arrested on a felony murder warrant in the Oct. 26 fatal shooting of Andre Wiggins, 19. When officers responded that day to a report of a shooting in the 5200 block of Clay Street NE, they found Wiggins at the scene with multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
