D.C. Fire and EMS rushed Sanders to the hospital Wednesday, where doctors pronounced him dead.
A medical examiner found conclusive evidence he was killed, attributing Sanders’ death to blunt force injuries.
Sanders is the youngest to be killed in D.C. this year. The District’s homicide rate is 44 percent higher than at this time last year.
