D.C. shooting suspect ordered held

Washington Post Editors

A D.C. Superior Court judge ordered a Southwest Washington man held in the D.C. jail in the shooting deaths of a Northeast Washington vendor and his son.

Magistrate Judge Karen Howze ordered Christian Taylor, 25, held until his preliminary hearing Aug. 3 in the killings of Ming-Kun Chih, 59, and his son Li-Jen Chih, 32, during a botched June 23 robbery of Lida Wholesale, a men's wear store in the 1200 block of Fifth Street NE.

Taylor was charged with two counts of first-degree murder while armed.
