DC police seek 2nd suspect in Northeast shooting

WASHINGTON — D.C. police released a video of a second suspect in a shooting that wounded a 4-year-old boy and a man in Northeast D.C.

The shooting happened a little after 6 p.m. on April 30 on 18th Place Northeast, at M Street just east of Bladensburg Road.

Police already arrested one suspect in the shooting, 23-year-old Kenneth Warren Morris III of Capitol Heights, Maryland. He has been charged with assault with intent to kill.

A witness told police they saw shots fired from inside a maroon Jeep that drove by. The witness then saw the Jeep parked in the parking lot of a restaurant about a half-mile away on Bladensburg Road. Video footage then showed Morris walking to a nearby gas station and dropping a ski mask in a garbage can.

Officers found Morris running north on Baldensburg Road when he was arrested.

Both victims were treated for non-life threatening injuries.

If you have any information about this shooting, D.C. police ask that you please 202-727-9099 or text the Department’s tip line at 50411. There is a reward of up to $10,000 to anyone who provides information leading to an arrest and conviction of anyone responsible for a shooting in D.C.
