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...
