Lots of folks sent me emails about Saturday’s shooting on the 2900 block of 14th Street, NW. Most folks sent me a WJLA report that mentioned that the woman killed was an innocent bystander. About the saddest news possible. Thankfully a suspect has been arrested. From a Mayor Fenty Press Release:
“Mayor Adrian M. Fenty and Metropolitan Police Department Cathy L. Lanier announced today an arrest in the August 29, 2009 murder of 48-year-old Deborah Ann Brown.
