Police say a domestic dispute ended in a deadly triple shooting and fire in Southeast D.C. Monday night. On Friday, the suspect was arrested and charged with two counts of murder.
The Metropolitan Police Department announced early Friday that 32-year-old Keanan Christopher Turner of Forestville, Maryland, had been named as a suspect in the crimes, and an arrest warrant was issued by the D.C. Superior Court.
Members of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, the United States Marshals Special Operations Group and the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office apprehended Turner later that day.
On Saturday, D.C. Police said Turner was charged with two counts of first-degree murder while armed (premeditated) and assault with intent to kill while armed.
Firefighters were called to the 2300 block of Good Hope Court off of Good Hope Road around 7:30 p.m. Monday.
When they arrived, they found one person with a gunshot wound outside the apartment in the parking lot.
Police say two other women were found shot inside the apartment.
Two women died from their injuries.
On Tuesday, D.C. police identified them as Wanda Wright, 47, and Ebony Wright, 32, both of Southeast.
Firefighters also located a three-month-old baby in the apartment. The baby was taken to the hospital for observation.
Police believe that it all happened after an argument.
