Fatal shooting in NE D.C.

A male who was shot Wednesday night in the Kingman Park area of Northeast D.C. has died, D.C. police said.

Police said the man apparently was shot in the upper body inside an apartment building just after 8 p.m. Investigators were interviewing another man who was taken into custody, but no charges were announced.

Police who were called to the scene in the 600 block of 24th Street NE found an unconscious male victim, said Officer Hugh Carew, a spokesman.

It was unclear what prompted the shooting.

Clarence Williams is the night police reporter for The Washington Post and has spent the better part of 13 years standing next to crime scene tape, riding in police cars or waking officials in the middle of night to gather information about breaking news in and around Washington.
