D.C. police arrested two teens Wednesday morning in the fatal shooting of a 19-year-old.

At about 1:40 a.m. Wednesday, police found Osman Al-Akbar of Northwest Washington in the 2600 block of University Place NW with multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Shortly after the shooting, officers in the neighborhood stopped two suspects in connection with the shooting.

Homicide detectives investigated the case, arresting Rashid Caviness-Bey, 19, of Northwest and a 15-year old male from Capitol Heights, charging them with first-degree felony murder while armed and carrying a pistol without a license.
