Donta Thrower RIP - 1200 block of N. Capitol Street NW

From a DC police report: On Friday, May 30, 2014, at approximately 9:24 pm, officers from the First District and a DC Housing Officer responded to a call for the report of a shooting in the 1200 block of North Capitol Street NW, Washington DC. Upon arrival, they located an adult male suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services personnel transported the victim, identified as Donta Thrower, 32, to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

There have been several homicides in or near this location over the past several years. It is just a dozen blocks from the US Capitol building.

I wish Mr. Thrower's family peace.
