Police investigating homicide at Deanwood Metro

Police are investigating a fatal stabbing at the Deanwood metro station, the second homicide at that location in a little over two weeks.

The name and age of the victim were not immediately available. Police had been investigating a stabbing at the metro station Monday morning, but announced on Twitter it had turned to a homicide investigation after the victim died.

On March 26, Davonte Washington was killed on the metro platform while traveling with his mom and sisters to get a haircut for Easter. Police arrested a 17-year-old for his murder.
