2nd man charged in Trinidad shooting

By Derek Kravitz

A second District man has been arrested and charged in this month’s shooting death of a high school student.

Larnell Allen, 19, was arrested Friday and charged in connection with the Nov. 8 killing of Joseph Alonzo Sharps Jr.

Sharps, 17, a senior at Spingarn High School, was fatally shot about 8:45 p.m. in the 1300 block of Holbrook Street NE in the Trinidad neighborhood. He had just finished his homework and was only blocks from home when he was shot, family members said.

Another District man, Kwan Kearney, 19, was arrested Tuesday and charged in connection with the shooting.

Kwan and Larnell....?....hard to believe......I would have perhaps suspected Bwop or Dabell...but never Kwan or Larnell....are you sure..?....did you ask their muthas?

It could have been the completed homework they were after....that is a valuable rarety in that part of the city.

Don't you love turning a tragedy like Joseph's death into unfunny racist humor?
