WASHINGTON — Police are asking for the public's help in finding a car believed to be used in a shooting near an elementary school that left a man dead earlier this month.
The shooting happened on Sept. 2 in the 1600 block of 18th Street Southeast at around 6:30 a.m. That's next to Kramer Elementary School and just a few blocks from Anacostia High School.
Responding officers found a man shot in the head. The victim, later identified as 43-year-old Jermaine Brown, was taken to an area hospital where he died.
Now, police have released photos of the vehicle they believe was used in the shooting. It is described as an older model Buick LeSabre with tinted windows and a dark colored front driver-side door handle.
