Guilty plea in shooting of Pepco worker
On the night of Dec. 3, as a Pepco crew tried to restore power in the 1900 block of First Street NW, a resident of the area walked by and didn’t like the way one crew member made eye contact with him, according to evidence presented in court by prosecutors Friday.
The resident started a fight, but the worker subdued him, and the resident left, according to the government evidence presented in D.C. Superior Court.
In a statement, prosecutors said evidence showed that the following events then occurred:
The resident returned, with a .22 caliber pistol. He yelled about finding the worker he had fought. The worker had taken refuge inside a large Pepco truck at the behest of his colleagues. But the door to the truck was open.
A co-worker stepped in to close the door.
A shot was fired. The co-worker was hit in the back of his head.
On Friday, the U.S. attorney’s office said, Marlo Johnson,17, who was charged as an adult, pleaded guilty to aggravated assault while armed in connection with the incident. Sentencing was scheduled for August.
