The Washington Blade has done some solid reporting on this morning’s horrible news. At around 3 a.m., a 35-year-old man was shot in the head and killed walking home from Fox & Hounds. The shooting took place at 11th and Q Streets NW.
The Blade reports:
“The victim was identified as Durval V. Martins of the 200 block of Bates Street, N.W. A police statement said Martins also suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the body.
Acting Lt. Brett Parson, who oversees the police’s Gay & Lesbian Liaison Unit, said the motive for the killing was unknown but could have been robbery. He noted that officers found the victim’s wallet in his hand.
Martins’ credit cards, cash, cell phone, and jewelry were still in his possession, Parson said.”
