City Paper is not for tourists
Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch has identified Ryan Randy Trotman as one of the victims of Monday night’s shooting on Quebec Place N.W.
Trotman, 28, of the 7400 block of 7th Street, N.W., later died of his injuries. The name of the other victim, a woman who was shot in the leg, is being withheld because she witnessed the crime.
But a quick call the police didn’t net anything new about whether the shooting and another incident a few blocks away the same night were part of a beef between rival gangs in the Petworth–Park View area.
“There are no updates” Officer Quintin Peterson in the police department’s Office of Public Affairs said this afternoon.
