Police are investigating a shooting that left a Maryland man dead over the weekend.
Charles Douglas, 33, from District Heights, was found by officers at 1:43 a.m. on Saturday after responding to a call of gunshots on the 1300 block of Riggs Street, NW. According to an MPD press release, Douglas was found suffering from apparent gunshot wounds and was transported by emergency personnel to a local area hospital. He later succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead.
According to WUSA 9, Washington Ward 2 Council member Jack Evans issued a statement Saturday afternoon and said Douglas was sitting in his car when an unknown person approached and fired several shots.
Douglas’ death is just one of three that rocked D.C. from Friday night to early Saturday, according to the Washington Post. However, Douglas’ case and that of two other victims are being investigated as separate homicides.
