Second man charged in killing near restaurant

D.C. police arrested and charged a second man Wednesday in the fatal shooting of a band member who was the brother of a local football standout, following what police said was an argument outside a restaurant in Anacostia.

Authorities arrested Khalil Davis, 22, of Southeast on a warrant that charged him with first-degree murder while armed in a killing behind the Uniontown Bar and Grill on Oct. 8, police said.

Early that morning, patrol officers found Omar Earl Rodgers of Southeast wounded in a vehicle. He died at a hospital.

Police previously had charged Michael Leonard Jones of Bladensburg with first-degree murder while armed in connection with the incident.

Rogers's brother, Sean Savoy, was a Washington Post first-team All-Met player at Woodrow Wilson High last year and now plays at Virginia Tech.

MARYLAND
Man is convicted of
crashing NSA gates

A Baltimore man accused of crashing through a gate at the National Security Agency at Fort Meade and leading police on a high-speed chase was convicted of conspiracy, carjacking and destruction of government property in federal court this week.

Dontae Small, 43, faces as many as 30 years on the charges stemming from the Oct. 4, 2015, incident.

Small was riding in a minivan with a group of men who had stolen a car and a phone in the Federal Hill area of Baltimore, according to a statement from the U.S. attorney's office in Maryland.

The group headed to Arundel Mills Mall with the minivan and the stolen car, police said. Officers spotted the group and tried to stop Small as he unlocked the doors of the stolen car, but Small got in the car and sped away, prosecutors said.

Small led police on a high-speed chase, during which he turned onto the entrance road to the Fort Meade installation that houses the NSA. He rammed into a gate, then bailed out of the car, prosecutors said. Small hid in a storm drain for a day before he emerged and police apprehended him.

He is scheduled to be sentenced in February.
