Police release video footage of suspect who may have shot, killed special police officer

A reward of up to $25,000 is on the table for anyone who can provide information that leads to an arrest and conviction of a person involved in the death.

WASHINGTON — Special Police Officer Angela Washington, a mother of four, was fatally shot in September. DC Police are still searching for her killer.

Officers arrived on scene in the 3300 block of 10th Place, Southeast on Sept. 21 to find Washington, 41, showing no signs of life, suffering from a gunshot wound. She was still on duty when it happened, killed in her Special Police Officer uniform. 

Police released new surveillance footage Thursday in hopes that it will help a member of the public recognize the suspect and share any additional information they may have. Watch the footage in full below.

Washington, who lived in Suitland, Maryland, is survived by her four children, who are between the ages of 17 and 23, as well as grandchildren.

“She was the best mother,” her husband, Reginald said. “The best wife on Earth to me.”

Reginald Washington said his wife loved serving her community. He said she organized an after-school program named “The Difference” that worked to keep underprivileged children off the street.

“This was her passion,” Reginald Washington said. “She just wanted to help make a change.”

Initially, investigators said that they were on the lookout for a White Camry with dark tinted windows. The car was last seen on Wheeler Road heading towards Southern Avenue. 

The Metropolitan Police Department currently offers a reward of up to $25,000 to anyone that provides information that leads to an arrest and conviction of a person responsible for any homicide committed in the District.

 Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the police at 202-727-9099. Additionally, anonymous information may be submitted to the department’s TEXT TIP LINE by sending a text message to 50411.
