Police Search for Suspects in Killing of 65-Year-Old in Southeast DC


A 65-year-old woman was shot and killed in Southeast Washington on Wednesday night; the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) released a photo of a vehicle of interest.

The incident took place in the 1800 block of Q Street, Southeast at approximately 10:00 pm.

MPD’s Sixth District responded to the location following reports of gunshot sounds, and found the victim, later identified as 65 year-old Ella-Mae Neal, of Southeast DC, who was suffering from an apparent gunshot wound, according to a police statement.

DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) members took Neal to an area hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

MPD’s homicide branch is asking for the public’s help to identify and locate a car that was captured on a surveillance camera in the neighborhood. The Department posted the photo on its website on Thursday.

DC police currently offers a reward of up to $25,000 to anyone who gives information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrators of any homicide committed in the District of Columbia.

Anyone with information on this shooting is asked to call MPD at 202-727-9099 or submit their tip by sending a text message to 50411.
