Reporting Series to Look at 2008 Shooting Death of Teen Alonzo Robinson

WTOP today published the first section of a three part series looking at the shooting death of 13-year-old Alonzo Robinson in Trinidad in 2008.

The 2008 fatal shooting of 13-year-old Alonzo Robinson in the Trinidad neighborhood of D.C. helped spark the second incarnation of the Metropolitan Police Department’s now dormant Neighborhood Safety Zones initiative and focused attention on the violence taking place in the city’s Northeast quadrant.

Now, nearly three years later, a trial for the young men accused in the events surrounding the teenager’s death is expected to begin. In a three-part series, WTOP takes a look at the night of Robinson’s death, the response by city police and the subsequent search for justice.
