“Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch announce an arrest has been made in the Mother’s Day shooting that killed a 10-year-old girl.
On May 14, 2023, at approximately 9:14 p.m., Sixth District Officers responded to the 3700 block of Hayes Street, Northeast for the sounds of gunshots and located evidence of a shooting. A short time later, 10-year-old Arianna Davis,
of Northeast, DC, was brought to a DC Fire and EMS station with gunshot wound injuries. She was transported to a local hospital where she died on May 17, 2023.
The investigation determined Arianna was riding as a passenger in a car with her family when she was struck by a stray bullet. Since the shooting, the community came forward with a number of tips and video evidence. Through community cooperation and the tireless work of MPD’s Homicide Branch, detectives were able to identify a suspect.
On September 18, 2023, 19-year-old Koran Gregory, of Southeast, DC, was arrested and charged with First-Degree Murder while Armed.
“The death of Arianna was a senseless tragedy. The Metropolitan Police Department extends our deepest condolences to Arianna’s family, and we hope this arrest helps bring some semblance of peace.” said Acting Chief Pamela A. Smith. “Community support was invaluable during this investigation. We are incredibly grateful to everyone who assisted in bringing this case to justice.”
MPD continues to search for other suspects involved in the incident. Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the police at 202-727-9099. Additionally, anonymous information may be submitted to the department’s TEXT TIP LINE by sending a text message to 50411.”
