From MPD:

“Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch have announced that a third arrest has been made in a homicide in the 1800 Block of Seventh Street, Northwest, on Thursday, August 15, 2015.

At approximately 4:50 pm, Third District officers responded to a call for a shooting, where they located an adult male victim suffering from a gunshot wound, unconscious and unresponsive. The victim was transported to an area hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.

On Tuesday, February 23, 2016, 26-year-old Christopher Proctor, of Northwest, DC, was arrested pursuant to a DC Superior Court arrest warrant. Mr. Proctor is charged with Second Degree Murder While Armed, in the shooting death of Matthew Shlonsky.

“Our detectives continue to work diligently in our investigative efforts, and it was through a variety of different detective work that our members were able to identify, locate, and make the third arrest. We hope it brings closure and a peace of mind to all who were invested in this case as we continue a successful investigation.” — Chief of Police, Cathy Lanier.”

    Unsurprisingly, another perp with 10+ arrests for unlawful entry, theft, drug distribution, contempt, etc. And that’s just what he managed to do in the few years he’s been an adult. Can only guess what a nice long juvenile record he has.

      Where did you find this info?

      • Tired

        it’s all public information available through the DC Court website.

            Those charges go all the way back to 1990… a real upstanding citizen here. I’d like to know his address and where this “Squad 2” is that’s shown in the youtube video linked below.

          • [rrrrr]

            dat, seeing as how the perp in this case was born in 1990, I don’t think he was getting traffic violations then.

            [rrrrr] look at the charges for Christopher Michael Proctor – that’s the right person and, unsurprisingly, the charges start when he turned 19 (post juvenile record). The 1990 is a different Chris Proctor.

      Did he say Rittenhouse?

    Good. And please keep the arrests coming until everyone even remotely involved in this case is brought to justice.

      +100, it is some small solace to know police were able to track down the killers in this horrible crime. I hope they are able to do so for all of the other innocent crime victims whos killers go unpunished.

    Cant possibly be the Christopher Proctor, quoted in the article about the killing of Matt Schlonsky, right?

    The police work in this case is actually something we should be proud of- read through the case in this article if you like.

      Woah, thanks for the link. That was very compelling and great work MPD! I was happy to see the two police officers regularly patrol that area and knew exactly who Christopher Proctor was. Great policing all around.

    • DC rez

      Sure, but even though it’s great they figured this out, the system just doesn’t work here in DC. MPD seems to have tolerated these local gangs/crews for years, know who they are, where they are, what they are up to, who they run with, arresting them many times, and in the end, we get extreme senseless gun violence that kills an innocent bystander. Let’s try to learn to celebrate MPD’s DC crew gunplay prevention more than MPD’s DC crew homicide crime scene re-creation. Sadly, perhaps we need both and more.

      • facts

        it’s not really fair to blame MPD for this kind of thing. It’s all about the council.

      • 7thStTechGuy

        Cops cant prosecute the people they yoke up, they can only get them off the streets and present a case to the prosecution to go to trial/charge, cant keep them off the street- that’s on the elected officials and DC’s court/criminal justice system which is a problem. Its not beat cops and MPD “Tolerating these local gangs/crews”. Two beat cops being able to place a perp because they actually gave a crap while they were on patrol is commendable, no matter what way you slice it. So Columbo with your years of prosecutorial experience and hard nosed police work, how do you stop the gunplay? *pulls out popcorn*
