Violent weekend in DC

A deadly weekend in Southeast DC. One man killed following a stabbing Sunday night in the 13-hundred block of Good Hope Road, near Anacostia High School. Saturday night, 21-year-old Avery Anderson was shot and killed in the 46-hundred block of Benning Road. A little over three hours later, 26-year-old Marquis Jones shot and killed in the two-thousand block of MLK, Jr. Avenue.

Officer who killed Tamir Rice gets new police job

The former police officer who shot and killed 12-year-old Tamir Rice has a new job, and its with the police. Timothy Loehmann hired as a part-time officer in the village of Bellaire in southeastern Ohio. Loehmann shot and killed Rice in November 2014 when he responded to a report of a boy carrying a gun. It turned out to be a toy gun. Loehmann was cleared by a grand jury, but was fired last year by the Cleveland Police Department for leaving out information on his employment application.

Skins and Saint in Monday night match-up

The Skins are on Monday Night Football tonight. The Burgundy and Gold in the Big Easy to face the Saints. It will be a tough hill to climb with the Drew Brees leading the charge for New Orleans.  But, Washington’s pro football team sits atop the NFC East with a chance to gain even more ground as the Eagles, Giants and Cowboys all lost on Sunday.
