WASHINGTON — A 17-year-old boy has been arrested and charged Monday with first-degree murder while armed after fatally shooting another teenager in Southeast D.C. in September.
On humid night in D.C., people flooded Stanton Road near the Wellington Park neighborhood in Southeast. Holding candles, and with balloons, they gathered at the site where 18-year-old TaQuan Pinkney was gunned down last weekend.
Police have arrested and charged Elijah Jarmon, 17, of Southeast D.C., with premeditated first-degree murder while armed. He is being charged as an adult.
Police had found Pinkney at Stanton Road suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Two other victims were located but not injured. Several vehicles were damaged.
Pinkney was a recent Suitland High School graduate, who was set to start classes at the University of D.C. Community College later this year.
Below is a map of where the shooting occurred.
