MTPD arrested the 16 year old male suspect in Northwest D.C. at approximately noon today. After an extensive investigation he is being charged with attempted second degree murder and carrying a pistol without a license. The suspect was wearing an ankle monitor at the time of his arrest.

I commend MTPD for their quick work apprehending this suspect,” said Metro General Manager Randy Clarke. “Metro has an extensive network of surveillance cameras that allow us to quickly identify perpetrators of violence and bring them to justice, and MTPD has dramatically increased its presence on rail and bus in the past several months to keep customers safe.” 

There are no additional suspects in this case. The three victims are all expected to recover.”
