I grew up with Dashawn. I remember when I went to college and would talk to my sister and DaShawn would say you sound so educated. I miss your smile and you were a good father , son, lover, friend to all who knew him. It hurts because I haven't seen you in years . R.I.P. Dashawn I promise I will watch over sis and nephew.</p></blockquote> Timothy RyanMon, 14 Jul 2014 13:03:18 -0400http://homicidewatch.org/2014/07/14/comment-of-the-day-this-hurts-my-heart-so-bad/DaShawn HammondsSunday Morning Shooting Kills DaShawn Hammondshttp://homicidewatch.org/2014/07/07/sunday-morning-shooting-kills-dashawn-hammonds/<p><iframe src="http://homicidewatch.org/api/v1/homicides/393.html" width="100%" height="350" frameborder=0></iframe></p> <p>A shooting in the 1200 Block of Simms Place Northeast killed 23-year-old <a href="http://homicidewatch.org/victims/dashawn-hammonds/">DaShawn Hammonds</a> early Sunday morning, according to MPD.</p> <p>Police officers found Hammonds unconscious and unresponsive at approximately 5:23 a.m. Emergency medical services transported him to a local hospital where succumbed to his injuries.</p> <p>A press release from MPD is after the jump.<br /> <span id="more-23730"></span></p> <blockquote><p><strong>Homicide: 1200 Block of Simms Place, Northeast</strong></p> <p>(Washington, DC) – Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a homicide which occurred in the 1200 block of Simms Place, Northeast.</p> <p>On Sunday, July 6, 2014, at approximately 5:23 am, members from the Fifth District responded to a call for a subject shot in the alley of 1200 block of Simms Place, Northeast.
