A man wanted in a slaying at a violence-plagued public housing complex turned himself in to D.C. police Monday.
Eric McDuffie, 23, who was wanted in the fatal shooting of Antonio McCallister, 23, appeared at a police station Monday, police spokesman Hugh Carew said.
McCallister was one of four people killed this year at the Woodland Terrace apartments. He was fatally shot July 24 in the 2700 block of Langston Place SE.
McDuffie, who lives on the block where the shooting occurred, according to court records, is charged with first-degree murder.
A man was stabbed to death Monday afternoon at a busy intersection in the H Street NE corridor, D.C. police said.
The stabbing occurred around 4 p.m. at 8th and H streets NE. The victim died at a hospital. A witness said the man was fighting with a second man when a third man intervened and stabbed him.
Also Monday, two men were stabbed in the 1400 block of Columbia Road NW in the Columbia Heights area, according to Lt. Sean Conboy, a police spokesman.
The victims’ wounds were not believed to be life-threatening.
Conboy said at least one suspect was arrested in that attack. No information was available about any motive.

Virginia state Sen. Richard H. Black (R-Loudoun) has been criticized by a fact checker for repeatedly accusing his Democratic opponent of supporting the sale of body parts.
Black got a “Pants on Fire” rating from Politifact Virginia , a collaboration between Politifact.com and the Richmond Times-Dispatch, for saying that pediatrician Jill McCabe, who is a Democrat, endorses the sale of fetal body parts for profit.
One tweet examined by the organization appears to have been deleted, although similar accusations remain on Black’s Twitter feed.
The sale of fetal tissue is illegal. In undercover videos, Planned Parenthood officials were recorded discussing payment for fetal tissue donated by women who have had abortions. The organization has said that such payments cover the cost of extracting, storing and transferring the tissue for medical research.
