Two Men Killed, One Injured After Northwest Washington Shooting


Two men died after they were wounded in a shooting in the 100 block of Q Street, Northwest DC Sunday afternoon, according to police.

A third man was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries following the incident that reportedly took place in the courtyard of a co-op building at around 3:30 pm.

Members of the Metropolitan Police Department’s (MPD) Third District responded to the scene and located the victims who were unconscious. DC Fire and EMS took the victims to a nearby hospital, where they succumbed to their injuries and were pronounced dead, MPD said in a press release.

The two men were later identified as as 22 year-old Jovan Hill Jr., and 19 year-old Tariq Riley, both of Northwest DC.

MPD is currently conducting a homicide investigation and offering a reward of up to $25,000 to anyone that provides information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrators of every homicide committed in the District.

Anyone who has information in relation to this case is asked to call the police at 202-727-9099. They can also submit tips anonymously to the department’s TEXT TIP LINE by sending a text message to 50411.

DC residents were shaken by the fatal shooting of a six-year-old girl who was crossing the street with her mother last weekend. Another shooting took place the next day outside Nationals Park during a Washington Nationals game.
