Police have charged a 36-year-old man for allegedly fatally assaulting a man in an argument.
In a press release, police say Metro Transit Police found Desmond Joseph unresponsive and suffering from a head injury in the 200 block of Rhode Island Ave., NE.
According to the Washington Post, Joseph and another man were involved in an argument over parking. The Post identified the man as Paul Hagans, though police on Tuesday were not available to confirm details of Joseph’s death, or the suspect’s name. They did announce the arrest of a 36-year-old man charged with aggravated assault.
Joseph, 41, was brought to a nearby hospital and placed on life support, according to the Post. He died the following day from his injuries.
