Teen, man killed, multiple others injured in several DC shootings Sunday

Metropolitan police have identified a boy killed in a double shooting in the Shaw neighborhood as 13-year-old Malachi Lukes of Northwest DC.

WASHINGTON — Two teen boys were shot, one killed and another injured, in a shooting in D.C's Shaw neighborhood. It was one of three shootings on Sunday, including a triple shooting.

The deadly teen shooting happened around 2 p.m. in the 600 block of S Street NW, police said. 

Additionally, a Nash Street NE shooting left 75 year-old Miguel Romero dead, police said. A shooting around 7 p.m. on New York Avenue NE left three men injured with gunshot wounds, but they are all in stable condition, police said.

The Sunday shootings come after multiple shootings in the District last weekend, including a Northwest shooting last Saturday that left a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old dead.

WUSA9 is working to confirm more information on the shootings from this weekend, and searching to learn more about what led to the two teens deaths last weekend.

The first of the three shootings on Sunday happened near the Shaw Metro Station and the two teens are reportedly under the age of 15, D.C. police said.

Officers first responded to the deadly teen shooting after hearing gunshots.

When officers responded, the two teens were found shot. Thirteen-year-old Malachi Lukes, of Northwest D.C.,was pronounced dead at a local hospital, according to officials.

Officials added that other teens ran away from the shooting scene when officers arrived. A few were taken into custody, but are not believed to be suspects in the shooting.
