Sentence in abduction: A D.C. man was sentenced to 20 years in prison yesterday for the kidnapping and attempted armed robbery of two men on Capitol Hill in September, the U.S. attorney's office said.

Johnny W. Littlejohn, 32, of the 1700 block of East Capitol Street, pleaded guilty Dec. 3 for his role in the kidnapping, in which his co-defendant Arvell Caldwell, 25, of South Dakota Avenue NE, also pleaded guilty, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors said Littlejohn and Caldwell, armed with handguns, approached two men on the porch of their home and forced them into a stolen Jeep Cherokee. After one of the victims was unable to withdraw money from a local ATM, the kidnappers drove to the Longworth Building, where the victims worked. One victim was able to alert U.S. Capitol Police, while the other disarmed one of the kidnappers.


* A D.C. man was found fatally shot Thursday night in the 1900 block of I Street NE. Kofi D. Holder, 24, of the 1800 block of Savannah Place SE, died within an hour of being found about 11:20 p.m., police said.

A 29-year-old Capitol Heights man, whose name was not released, was found two blocks away with a gunshot wound. He was in serious condition yesterday at a hospital, police said.
