D.C. police have arrested a suspect in a fatal shooting of a Maryland man that occurred earlier this month near the Eckington neighborhood of Northeast Washington, according to a statement from the department.
Police said they charged Meisha Hines, 23, of Northeast, with first-degree murder while armed. Hines could make an initial appearance Tuesday in D.C. Superior Court.
The shooting occurred about 10:20 p.m. on Aug. 3 in the 1500 block of North Capitol Street, near O Street and just north of New York Avenue. Police identified the victim as Wendell Youngblood, 46, of Baltimore.
Police said Youngblood had been shot several times and died at a hospital. No possible motive has been provided.
Authorities said Hines also has been charged with assault with a dangerous weapon after allegedly striking another person with a baseball bat on Sunday in the first block of Florida Avenue NW. That is three blocks north of where the Aug. 3 shooting occurred.
