Information on Homicide in Vermont Ave. Alley

So by now most of us have heard about the homicide in the alley behind the 1300 block of Vermont Avenue. Heck, it even made DCist. Here's what is known, after a few days of processing and information gathering:

  • The call came in at around 2:00 AM on Thursday, July 17, to this alley.

  • The victim was dead at the scene, apparently from a gunshot wound to the head.

  • The victim has been identified as Derrick Green, who was a suspect in many of the robberies around our neighborhood.

  • It appears he was out in the alley to fight with somebody; and, well, as the saying goes...

If you have any information on this murder, please call +1 202.727.9099 or 1-888-919-CRIM. Or send an anonymous text messaging to 50411. There is a reward of $25,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.
