On Sept. 18, the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) arrested and charged 19-year-old Koran Gregory with first-degree murder while armed for his alleged involvement in a shooting that killed a 10-year-old girl on May 14 on the 3700 block of Hayes Street, NE.

According to MPD documents, officers responded to the location for the sounds of gunshots and located evidence of a shooting. A short time later, 10-year-old Arianna Davis was taken to a DC Fire and EMS station with gunshot wound injuries. She was transported to a local hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries on May 17.

MPD’s investigation determined Davis was a passenger in her family’s vehicle, when she was struck by a stray bullet.

MPD’s investigation is ongoing, and they request anyone with other information to reach out to them.
