A witness who was nearby when a 38-year-old man was fatally shot was called to testify during trial.
Antwon Green is charged with second-degree murder for allegedly murdering Breond Keys, who was shot while getting a haircut at a barbershop in Southeast DC.
The witness on the stand was robbed in an alleyway near the barber shop and a book bag was taken from him. Inside the bag were 18 dollars, some knives and personal documents — one knife and a personal document from the book bag were identified by the witness during the trial.
The witness testified he was in the alleyway the previous night to hand out samples of drugs he had purchased and returned the next morning to see people’s reactions, when he was robbed by someone he didn’t recognize in a mask.
The robber assaulted and threatened to shoot the witness, before taking his belongings.
The witness returned to his stepdad’s house nearby, where he stayed for the rest of the day.
The government played video recordings from various stores, including the front of the barber shop, and asked the witness if he was in any of the recordings.
The witness said he was not recorded in any of the videos played for the jury. He testified he had never been inside that barber shop and did not murder Breond Keys.
