Death Investigation in Columbia Heights

MPD is investigating a death in Columbia Heights this morning, a listserv message from Third District Commander Jacob Kishter states.

It says:

The Metropolitan Police Department is investigating a death which occurred at 14th and Park Road at approximately 5:15 AM this morning.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Metropolitan Police Department at 202-727-9099 or or text at 50411.

In an email to the Columbia Heights community, Councilman Jim Graham said that the victim, a 42-year-old man, appeared to have been dropped from a car.

He wrote:

Dear Friends, MPD tells me that—early this morning about 5 AM—a 42year old man with head trauma appears to have been dropped out of a car at 14th and Park. He later died from his injuries. It is not clear if the trauma had occurred before or after he was put out of the car. If you know anything about this strange and tragic occurrence, please contact MPD at 202-727-9099.
