  • I can’t believe the guy with a gun tattooed on his neck turned out to be bad news.

  • I am shocked – SHOCKED – that a upstanding young man with a handgun tattoo on his throat would be involved in a shooting.

    • I’d have to imagine that limits your career options just a bit.

      • But it makes you hardcore and cool!

      • Well my friend, these guys–and thousands more just like them–don’t have any career options to begin with. They know this at a very ealry stange in their lives. So despite all of you people’s not so witty snark, it really shouldn’t be a surprise that this young man has a gun tattooed on his neck, and that he may be involved in this.

        • whoa now puppy. to say it’s not surprising that a man sprayed 13 people with bullets?

          you need to walk away from what ever you are on.
          yes it is surprising. and it should always be surprising when a human does this to other humans.

          • If you would pay close attention to the thread, you would see that no one was referring to the outrageousness of the drive by shooting itself. The comment was directed at the attempt to inject humor in this very event by proclaiming one of the suspects, by this act, has “limited his career options.” Rest assured, I am indeed sober and know very well the kinds of environments folks like our suspects come from. Perhaps if some participants on PoP could break away from their roof top bars and other cool hangouts long enough to fully grasp whats really happening in this city, they wouldn’t be so quick to display their ignorance on this forum.

          • my apologies. i see what you’re saying.

  • diploj

    “Anyone with information that can assist in the identification of this subject is asked to call the police at (202) 727-9099.”

    I believe he is 19-year-old Craig Wilson. I’ll take my $10K now, please.

  • 6’2” and 140 lbs? that is a very skinny man

  • i’m very glad to see that mpd have identified suspects in this. i’m still shaken by the horror of it.

  • Guns don’t kill people, people with tattoos of guns kill people.

  • #1 looks like a white guy with black face on.

    • 5’8″ 150# and 6’2″ 140#

      What was the comment in the earlier post about the opossum?
      “You will know fear.”
      That same comment would equally apply to these scrawny boys when they get to the big house. Wish ‘em the best of luck.

  • sweet tatoo bro!

  • Two average clean-cut looking kids (save for that gun tat).

    • Um I think you mean one average clean-cut looking kid and one kid with A NECK TATTOO OF A GUN.

      (Well, and one has super-bling earrings and the other has ungroomed facial scruff, but I’m not trying to go totally grandpa on you.)

  • The ride was a PG Cadillac? Figures.

    • Please explain what PG and Cadillac PLEASE!!! Please tell the general public EXACTLY what you meant by that.

      • a lot of crime in dc in 2013 comes from youth in maryland, and specifically Prince George’s county maryland. and youths driving really nice cars? either spoiled ass mamas boys from a rich life trying to be rebellious, or just plain criminals.

        whats your take?

        • Anonymous – PG Kids are FINANCIALLY CHALLENGED kids that used to live in the District of Columbia in project areas, when the gentrification started, and the projects were closed, PG was one of the only counties accepting housing vouchers. To assume that they are from PG county is ignorant at best since I just learned (being a native DC resident) that Mr. Wilson is a DC resident. The Cadillac statement was in my mind racist at least since the reference is to those that used to transport pimps and prostitutes. In the seventies it was equated with being a street thug. The car pictured above is a MERCEDES.

          • So sorry that financially challenged children with pistols tattoed on their necks have been forced to move to PG county by gentrification. I really miss them.

          • Yeah, me too. And people complain about gentrification why?

          • Anonymous- People complain about gentrification because of the hubris that the newcomers bring with them. They complain because of their smug attitudes that say: “I am the master of the universe and you and your culture are nothing.” They complain because of the newcomer’s expectation that “its my way or the highway” (and usually it’s the highway for longtime residents). They complain because before there were newcomers and their blogs, and their cool pubs, and their community policing meetings, these drive by shootings were happening every night in the very neighborhoods you now call cool.. and often the police never showed up. If you lived here for 30 years held hostage by gang bangers, wouldn’t you wonder why there was never a police presence until the newcomers came along? Wouldn’t that make you feel a little undervalued. Wouldn’t that undervalued feeling make you a bit hostile to gentrification?

            Not all aspects of gentrification are bad. Investing in communities is a good thing indeed. But doing it in the way described above is reason to complain.

          • Cry me a river.

          • “Cry me a river”

            Yes…remember that when you are foolishly walking home late at night and you come across your worse nightmare….and there’s no one there to help you.

          • i’m not certain what the “cry me a river” was aimed at.

          • Snitches get stitches

            also, they get nicer neighborhoods where children don’t fear to play outside, where schools are for education not prison preparatory institutions. they get areas where the economy can actually grow and jobs can be created.
            but, yeah, i guess it’s better to stay stupid and unemployed. fucking idiot.

  • I don’t know, I think that tattoo is pretty bada$$.

  • “Subject #2 who is shown below is identified as 19-year-old Craig Wilson. He is described as a black male, 6-feet-2 inches tall, 140 pounds, brown eyes, black hair with a dark complexion.”

    If only there was some other distinguishing feature that would help ID this guy.

  • i find it interesting that 1). the descriptions of these boys are not fully correct and 2). not one of the commenters seemed to pick up on it. suspect 1 might well be described as having a “medium complexion” (although, that’s kind of a stretch, albeit perhaps only a slight one); but unless there’s some really intense lighting going on in suspect 2′s mug shot, homeboy can not be described as having a dark complexion.

  • Dude is gonna get tore up in prison.

  • Are mod now not certain that shots came out of the second vehicle?

  • Prince Of Petworth
