Parents of NE DC quadruple shooting victim speak out
Police have released disturbing surveillance video of a quadruple shooting. Jarvis Belle, 29, died after the shooting in Northeast, D.C. on Thursday night, according to the Metropolitan Police Department.
The shooting happened around 7:44 p.m. at 18th St. and Monroe St. NE.
Belle's parents say they don't know why anyone would want to hurt their son.
"He did nothing but care and love and respect us and his family and friends," said his mother, Lisa Belle.
Jarvis Belle lived just one block from the gas station where he was gunned down. His father heard it happened.
"I heard the gunshots. I was here at the moment and came outside. One of Jarvis' friends came up and told me Jarvis was shot. I ran up and saw him laying on the ground," said his father, George Belle.
The three other victims were all men and police sat they were all conscious and breathing. Police believe at least three gunmen approached a group of people at an Exxon gas station and started shooting.
Police say the lookout is for a dark four-door Sedan, possibly a Lexus. There is no suspect description at this time. Police are asking the public to come forward with any possible information.
Belle's parents are asking anyone with any information to come forward in hopes of catching their son's killers.
"This pain is not going to go away, but it will ease the pain when the handcuffs come and things happen for them," said George Belle.
The Metropolitan Police Department is offering a $25,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest.
