The third man accused in the case, Terry Jimenez, pleaded guilty last April to second-degree murder while armed, assault with intent to kill, and aggravated assault knowingly while armed.”

They say sentencing is March 7 for Bryant and Bush and January 17 for Jimenez.

Before getting into today’s Good Deal or Not-Revisited (GDoN-R), I wanted to revisit the neighborhood of last week’s GDoN-R, which you can see here. There was another settlement on Florida Avenue NE close by this past week. It was a larger property that settled at net $850,000. You can see the original Good Deal or Not (GDoN) post for this property here.

Now, back to your regularly scheduled GDoN-R, which is across the city on Georgia Ave NW near Howard University. There are twenty two units in this new construction (new vs. coverted/renovated existing building) building that went up in 2011. Building amenities include an elevator, bike storage, and a common roof deck. This is a top floor unit, which is considered a premium, especially with an elevator. Commenters to the original GDoN post debated the proximity to Metro. Google says it’s a twelve minute walk to either Petworth or Columbia Heights Metro.

The listing agent was Leslie Suarez of Evers and Company Real Estate, Inc. The purchaser was represented by Michael Marriott with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.

From MPD:

“The Metropolitan Police Department is investigating a shooting death this morning where the victim was found in the 2900 block of Sherman Avenue, Northwest.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact us on 202-727-9099 or text to 50411.”

From CM Jim Graham:

“I have very sad news. A Latino juvenile was pronounced dead from gunshot last might at Washington Hospital Center. He was taken in a private vehicle to hospital from the vicinity of Columbia Road and Sherman Avenue.

We have confirmed that very recently was committed as a ward to the Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services. He had a pass to visit that area.

According to MPD, there was no recorded shot spotter reports or complaints of gunshots in this area.

Much more needs to be known about this. I am advised that the car and driver are known to MPD.

For now, our most sincere sympathy goes to his family and friends.”
