Third man charged in Feb. D.C. murder

A 16-year-old District man has been arrested and charged with the February murder of Carlos B. Alexander, D.C. police said, marking the third arrest in connection with the case.

The 16-year-old, whom police did not name, was arrested March 13.

Two other District men aged 19 and 16 were arrested in connection with the case in February and charged with Alexander's murder, police said. The older man was Daquan Johnson; the younger was not named by police. The Washington Post generally does not name juveniles charged in crimes unless they are charged as adults.

Police found Alexander, 47, of the 400 block of 53rd St. NE, lying unconscious in front of an apartment building around 7 a.m. on Feb. 3. Emergency personnel who arrived at the scene in the 700 block of 21st St. NE could not find signs of life, police said.

Alexander was pronounced dead later that day by a representative of the Chief Medical Examiner's office; the cause of death was ruled homicide due to complications caused by blunt force injury on Feb. 12.
