Man killed in new DC condo

Washington Post editors

A 35-year-old government worker was found fatally stabbed Monday night in an 11-story apartment-condo building a few blocks from the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, D.C. police said.

Delando King, who worked in Rockville for the U.S. Indian Health Service, part of the Department of Health and Human Services, was found stabbed shortly after 6 p.m. in his third-floor apartment at 1117 10th Street NW, police said. The 130-unit building, called Quincy Court, is between L and M streets NW, two blocks west of the convention center.

Police said someone called 911 from the building to report that a man needed help, which led to the discovery of King’s body. The slaying remains under investigation by homicide detectives.

I hope it was gay related from trying to pick up gay sex off some gay internet site.

Correction:

I hope it wasn't gay related from the victim trying to pick up a man for gay sex from a gay Internet site.
