Police announce arrest in David Norwood murder

Monday, a day after police say he stabbed a 79-year-old man to death, police arrested 21-year-old Malcolm Amir Cunningham.

David Norwood was found on Capitol Hill Sunday afternoon. Police arrived to the scene, 600 block of C St. NE, and found Norwood unresponsive, unconscious and suffering from apparent stab wounds. He was pronounced dead on the scene and later transported to the medical examiner’s office.

A day later, police arrested and charged Cunningham with second-degree murder while armed for his alleged involvement in the murder.

Cunningham is being held without bond and is expected in court May 2 for a preliminary hearing.
