On November 7 at 9:30 p.m. police responded to 11th and Otis on a call for a man down. They found an adult male suffering from multiple stab wounds. He was transported to an area hospital. He died from his injuries at 11:15 p.m. He was later identified as 28-year-old Luis Alberto Membreño Zeyala, of the 400 block of Gallatin Street, NW.

A reader on Prince of Petworth reported a bit more on this. Though the dates are off, it appears to be the same stabbing incident.

The post provoked this really stupid comment from “Nate”:

“Othr than the reward, why should anyone turn the killer in? It seems he efficiently killed the person he wanted to kill with little collateral damage. In a city, knifing is much safer and preferable than shooting into a crowd or an occupied car or building. To me this killing was wrapped up rather neatly. Bad guy dies at the hands of an even badder guy. As long as the bad guy does not start knifing good guys, what really is the big deal?”
