12-year-old boy charged with murder in fatal shooting of 13-year-old: Police

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Detectives arrested and charged a 12-year-old boy from Washington, DC, with first degree murder and related charges. He is charged as a juvenile in the fatal shooting of 13-year-old King Douglas of Upper Marlboro.

Detectives said they “do not believe this was a random shooting.”

On Saturday, at 10:15 pm, officers responded to a shopping center in the 1700 block of Ritchie Station Court for an initial report of a stabbing. Once on scene, officers located the victim outside suffering from a gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

A second victim, a 13-year-old male, was located nearby suffering from stab wounds. His injuries were not considered life-threatening and he has since been released from a hospital.

Police say the shooting and stabbing stemmed from a “dispute between two groups of juveniles” in the shopping center.

Detectives are working to identify and arrest the suspect who stabbed the surviving victim.
