DeMorning Links: Deadly day in D.C.

A 2010 murder scene. (Sarah L. Voisin - WASHINGTON POST)
It has been a violent 24 hours in the District: Monday afternoon a man was shot to death near Shipley Terrace. Two other men died overnight in separate stabbing incidents on Quarles Street NE in Kenilworth and on Florida Avenue NW near LeDroit Park. These three murders, Homicide Watch notes, follow two weekend homicides — one blocks from the Quarles Street scene (now apparently solved) and one near Edgewood Terrace. Despite the surge in violence, this year’s D.C. homicide count remains 15 percent behind last year’s.
