Man found shot in D.C. park

District police were called to Fort Dupont Park in the 3400 block of Minnesota Avenue SE at about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday after U.S. Park Police discovered the body of a black male, possibly in his 40s, whose identity police have not yet established.

The man had been shot and his death is being investigated as an apparent homicide, said Lt. Nicholas Breul, District police spokesman.

Say what and who are the suspects?
We know and hopefully someone comes forward and not tell lies like some do in these heare parts of DC.
Cannot tell names for fear of Judge Judy B of DC Super Court and her female sympathizers in the obese parts of SE,how fake they are!

Well, SE DC continues to be a smaller version of Detroit.

... and some in the Washington area show the divisive and destructive ways and mindset of the Klan.

Let us clear up some things. Most of the killings this year, have not been in SE! Check the records and you will see that NE and NW, have had more killings. SE, will never be a version of Detroit!!!

I am sick and tired of hearing that SE is soooo bad! Crime happens in every part of this city and region. All of SE is not a shoot-out at the OK corral!

Where was it that the multiple shootings / murders (6,7,8?) happened in DC recently over a bracelet? S.E? N.E?

No matter how murders and serious assaults occur in SE people consistently defend the area as middle class and no more crime plagued as NW or SW. They say that it's the media under reporting killings else where. How disingenuous. What a vicious and violent culture.

NE/SE it's all Washington D.C. and it's my home and I'm proud of it. The multiple shooting earlier as well as this one involved victims that were very close to me and my family. D.C. stands on its own and can't be compared to another city. D.C. governs the entire country, all others are wanna be's. instead of arguing, lets show some compassion for the victims and pray that the suspect(s) are/is found.

D-Rock my daughter was very close to all that was murdered on S. Capital Street. I truly agree and understand your point. I am so sick of this and tired of hearing about homocides. This year has been tough for me. I have lost a lot of people I cared about and loved. People need to show compassion.

So how many murders does that make for 2010 in the city so far? The number seems to steadily climb weekly... even daily.

Posted by: ericroks | June 9, 2010 4:27 PM | Report abuse

All: Statistically, S.E. is the worst part of the city Districts 1-5 which comprise all other areas of the city and a small portion of S.E. only had 9 homicides this year. Districts 6 and 7, which are all S.E., have had 32 homicides. You do the math. S.E. is a violent part of the city filled with violent people.

Hear, hear! It's good to see all these voices standing up to the hate! SE is no worse than anywhere else west of Rock Creek Park.

I'm sick of all these suburban racists that come out when someone gets shot!

lottaaction: ward 7 is not all SE dear. And regardless of the zip code, region or area, which is not what its about. It is about the lack of respect for human life. Come out of the zoning box and realize things are bigger than an area. You know there are only two reasons people live where they live one being because we have no choice or we choose to. Either way lets consider the feelings of those who do not have a choice. Oh, and no I am not one of those who has to. Negativety begets Negativety!!!!!!! At any time any situation could be us..........
