WJLA reports that a man killed early Saturday morning in Capitol Hill had just moved into the neighborhood that day.
Jason Anthony Emma was found slumped against the steering wheel of his car, about two blocks from his new home, at about 2:15 Monday morning. Neighbors said they didn’t hear gunshots, but a rapid succesion of noises, WJLA reports.
“I didn’t think at the time that it was gunfire. It was just oddly loud; it was a series of noises closely spaced, so it was probably a rapid fire machine gun,” resident Chris Pala said.
Police are looking for at least two armed suspects—preliminary investigations show the motive may be robbery.
The Washington Post reports that police are looking for “two men between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet tall — one with a heavy build and wearing a white T-shirt with dark sleeves.”
