Arrest Made in Petworth Stabbing Nov. 6th


A reader writes in about the incident and arrest in case others hadn’t heard yet. I’m not sure how I missed this one. I’m glad to hear an arrest was made:

“My wife and I just bought a house in Petworth, and in looking over the crime reports for the area we saw that there was a homicide at 4211 Second Street. Here is the Police Report and subsequent arrest report.”

Detectives assigned to the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch have announced that an arrest has been made in the homicide of Kevin Massey who was fatally stabbed in the 4200 block of 2nd Street, NW, on November 6, 2009.  At approximately 5:30 am on Wednesday, November 11, 2009, 24-year-old Justin Lee Navarro was arrested in Southwest Washington by members from the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force.  Mr. Navarro of Northwest Washington has been charged with First Degree Murder While Armed pursuant to an arrest warrant in the death of Kevin Massey.

At approximately 11:45 p.m. on Friday, November 6, 2009, officers from the Fourth District responded to the 4200 block of 2nd Street, NW, to investigate the report of a stabbing. Upon arrival, officers discovered an adult male inside of an apartment suffering from apparent multiple stab wounds.  The victim, identified as 31-year-old Kevin Massey, was subsequently pronounced dead on the scene by a representative from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for the District of Columbia.
