A man who was cleaning up property in Southeast Washington on Friday afternoon was shot and killed, D.C. police said.

Cmdr. Robert Contee said the shooting occurred about 3 p.m. in the rear of the 4600 block of Hillside Road.

The man was apparently behind an apartment house with a crew of people hired for a cleanup when the shooting occurred, Contee said. He said shots were fired following an altercation.

The site is between Benning and Ridge Roads, east of Fort Dupont Park.
