Two transgendered people were attacked - one killed - on the same street in D.C. recently, and police are asking for the public's help in solving the crimes.
The first attack occurred on July 20 in the 6100 block of Dix Street when a transgendered person was shot and killed at about 4:30 a.m. The victim and a witness were walking when two men approached them, appearing to ask a question. One of the men then brandished a semi-automatic handgun and killed the victim without provocation, police say.
Police describe both suspects as black men in their late teens or early 20s. The first suspect is said to be about 6 feet tall with a thin build and a light complexion. The shooter is described as shorter, with a darker complexion.
Eleven days later, on July 31, a transgendered person was walking in the 6200 block of Dix Street at about 2:45 a.m. when a man approached asking for change. Without waiting for a reply, the man pulled out a semi-automatic handgun and shot at the victim, missing. The victim was not injured, police say.
