From Council Member Jim Graham:
“On this day of blizzard, I must inform you of the death of two persons in an apt at 710 Girard NW. The bodies of the male and female (both about 30 years of age) were found late last night.
Neither of them lived in the apartment, and both had addresses outside of Ward 1.
MPD is suggesting it may be drug related, and there may also be a suggestion of an execution style killing. None of that is confirmed.
The male victim has been identified but the name is not being released because the family has not been notified.
More as information is provided.”
Update from MPD:
“Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a double homicide which occurred in the 700 block of Girard Street, Northwest.
On Monday, January 20, 2014, at approximately 10:56 pm, police officers from the Third District responded to a call for the report of an unconscious person. Upon arrival, they located an adult male and an adult female suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services personnel responded to the scene. Neither victim exhibited any signs consistent with life. Both decedents were transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner where an autopsy will be performed.
The male victim has been identified as 36-year-old Oluremi Thomas of Northwest, DC. The female victim has been identified as 24-year-old Keyonna Proctor of Southeast, DC.”
