Search Continues for Suspect in Second Fatal Shooting at Same Scene

Update Tuesday, December 20, 2016: A third victim has died from injuries he suffered during this shooting in October. The victim is 27-year-old Gleason Wood of Oglethorpe Street in Northeast DC. Detectives continue to search for the suspect(s) wanted in this shooting.

Anyone with information is urged to call 1-866-411-TIPS. You will never have to give your name.

 Bravon Freeman

Homicide Unit detectives arrested a man in connection with the fatal shooting of 14-year-old Todd Webb in Capitol Heights early Sunday morning. The suspect is 22-year-old Bravon Freeman of the 4900 block of Call Place in Southeast Washington. The investigation continues into identifying and arresting the suspect(s) who shot and killed 18-year-old Brian Davis at that same shooting scene minutes earlier. 

On October 30th, at about 2:45 am, patrol officers were called to the 6800 block of Walker Mill Road for a shooting. They discovered a total of six shooting victims in the parking lot. Webb and Davis were pronounced dead on the scene.

The preliminary investigation reveals the six victims and Freeman were among a group of people who were gathered outside an apartment building to take part in or watch a dice game. For a reason which remains under investigation, a suspect or suspects began to shoot into the group. Davis was killed in that shooting. Several minutes later, detectives believe Freeman went inside the building, got a gun and then shot and killed Webb. Responding patrol officers arrested Freeman on the scene. 

Freeman is in the custody of the Department of Corrections being held on a no bond status. He is charged with first and second degree murder.
