Man fatally shot during suspected armed robbery in Suitland

A 26-year-old Northeast Washington man was fatally shot after he and another accomplice tried robbing a Prince George’s apartment on Friday night, according to police.

John Manigualt, 26, was shot after he and one of the residents inside the Suitland apartment fought him over his gun, police said. Manigualt, suffering from the gunshot, and a second man, Michael William Hall, 27, of the District, ran from the apartment on the 2600 block of Shadyside Avenue and into a car, where a third man, Daquawn Lubin, of Arlington, was waiting.

Police said the trio drove to a Northeast Washington firehouse to get help for Manigualt, but he later died at a hospital.

Police said they believe the robbery may have been drug-related.

Lubin and Hall are in District jail, and no charges have been filed in Manigualt’s shooting.
