On Friday, November 2, 2007, at 2135 hours, members of the Fifth District responded to the 2900 block of 10th Street NE (10th and Franklin Street NE) for the sounds of gunshots.
While the responding officer was canvassing at this location, another call for service was dispatched to the front of 4015 9th Street NE for a shooting. Upon arrival to this location, the members located an unconscious male suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The DCFD responded and all life saving efforts were attempted and proved futile. The decedent was transported to the OCME.
The decedent was identified as: Rick Kearney, B/M, 24 years of age, (residing in SE Wash DC)
It should be noted that the driver of the vehicle that the decedent was traveling in has been arrested and charge with two weapons charges. The investigation is ongoing, and making excellent progress at this time!!
