Olivet Road Northeast in Nov. 2011. The shooting also injured four other men.</p> <p>It wasn't eyewitnesses, though, but neighborhood police officers that provided the key identification of Hilton in charging documents.<br /> <span id="more-13410"></span><br /> Homicide detectives separately asked the two officers, who didn't work on the case, if they recognized the men in the video, Detective James Wilson testified Friday.</p> <p>The officers, who had both worked in the same E Street neighborhood for seven to eight years, told investigators they recognized one suspect instantly – even though they couldn't make out his face.</p> <p>Both had worked with neighborhood football programs and said they had directly worked with Hilton when he played the sport in high school and middle school.</p> <p>One officer had recently seen Hilton playing basketball, and observed that he was left-handed – similar to the man in the video, who carried what appeared to be a firearm in his left hand.</p> <p>But it was the football memories, though, that stuck with the officers.</p> <p>Hilton "has a unique gait," Assistant U.S. Attorney Shana Fulton said.</p> <p>The officers recognized Hilton's "bow-legged" running instantly, Wilson said, along with his long dreadlocks.</p> <p>Hilton's attorney, Anthony Matthews, argued that that explanation strained credibility.</p> <p>More likely, Matthews said, the officers thought, "I don't know who that is, but he kind of runs like somebody I know."</p> <p>Judge Beck, though, thought differently.</p> <p>"I don't find that hard to believe at all," Beck said, adding it would be harder to prove the case at trial.</p> <p>Hilton is due to return to court June 14 at 10:30 a.m. for a status hearing.</p> Sam PearsonFri, 01 Mar 2013 23:56:23 -0500http://homicidewatch.org/2013/03/01/suspects-unique-gait-leads-investigators-to-dwayne-hilton-in-2011-gang-related-murder/Mico BriscoeDwayne HiltonDwayne Hilton Ordered Held in Connection with Murder of Mico Briscoehttp://homicidewatch.org/2013/02/12/dwayne-hilton-ordered-held-in-connection-with-murder-of-mico-briscoe/<p><a href="http://homicidewatch.org/suspects/dwayne-hilton/" >Dwayne Hilton</a> appeared in court today where Judge Karen Howze ordered him held in connection with the November 2011 shooting death of 18-year-old <a href="http://homicidewatch.org/victims/mico-briscoe/" >Mico Briscoe</a>. </p> <p>According to charging documents, detectives used surveillance video, CCTV cameras, and jailhouse calls to conclude that Hilton, also known as Wayne-Wayne, was involved in the murder.<br /> <span id="more-13022"></span><br /> According to the documents, on Nov, 26, 2011, Briscoe and four surviving victims were shot outside a Circle 7 Express store located in the 1200 block of Mt. Olivet Road Northeast. </p> <p>Police believe that the shooting was the result of ongoing feud between two rival crews: The “E Street Bangaz” and the “Trinidad Crew.” Hilton is believed to be a member of the “E Street Bangaz,” the documents say.</p> <p>Briscoe and the other victims all grew up in the Trinidad neighborhood, and detectives believe they are “loosely affiliated” with the Trinidad Crew, according to the documents.</p> <p>According to the documents, surveillance video from near the crime scene shows a gold Mitsubishi Galant circling the 1200 block of Mt. Olivet Road NE shortly after midnight on Nov. 26. Detectives believe the occupants of the vehicle were circling to observe those who would eventually be shot. </p> <p>Soon after, two black men are seen running in Briscoe's direction. One man is seen pulling something down over his face and appears to be carrying a gun in his right hand. Another man appears to be holding something in his left hand. </p> <p>The video then shows Briscoe and those he was with ducking for cover. Briscoe runs eastbound on Mt. Olivet Road and out of sight of the camera. The two men run away from the direction of the shooting and jump into the Galant, which was in a nearby parking lot. The vehicle is driven away and turns eastbound on Mt. Olivet, according to arrest documents.</p> <p>Briscoe was found in the 1200 block of Simms Place Northeast, which is in the rear of where the shooting is believed to have happened. He was transported to the hospital where he died three hours later from two gunshot wounds to his upper torso. </p> <p>Nineteen 9mm expended cartridge casings were collected from the scene of the incident; technicians confirmed that the casings were fired from two separate guns, charging documents say. </p> <p>On January 29, 2012, police officers spotted the gold Galant parked in the 400 block of 20th Street Northeast. A vehicle registration check determined that Hilton's mother owned the vehicle in November 2011. </p> <p>A preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 1.<br /> <em><br /> Arrest documents are below.</em></p> <p><script src="//s3.amazonaws.com/s3.documentcloud.org/viewer/loader.js"></script><br /> <script> DV.load("//www.documentcloud.org/documents/603083-dwayne-hilton-charging-documents.js", { width: 450, height: 600, sidebar: false, container: "#DV-viewer-603083-dwayne-hilton-charging-documents" }); </script></p> <noscript> <a href="http://s3.documentcloud.org/documents/603083/dwayne-hilton-charging-documents.pdf" onclick="javascript:_gaq.push(['_trackEvent','download','http://s3.documentcloud.org/documents/603083/dwayne-hilton-charging-documents.pdf']);">Dwayne Hilton Charging Documents (PDF)</a><br /> <br /> <a href="http://s3.documentcloud.org/documents/603083/dwayne-hilton-charging-documents.txt" onclick="javascript:_gaq.push(['_trackEvent','outbound-article','http://s3.documentcloud.org']);">Dwayne Hilton Charging Documents (Text)</a><br /> </noscript> Penny RayTue, 12 Feb 2013 16:55:56 -0500http://homicidewatch.org/2013/02/12/dwayne-hilton-ordered-held-in-connection-with-murder-of-mico-briscoe/Mico BriscoeDwayne HiltonArrest in 2011 Shooting Death of Mico Briscohttp://homicidewatch.org/2013/02/11/arrest-in-2011-shooting-death-of-mico-brisco/<p>A 21-year-old Northeast DC man was arrested Monday in connection with the Nov. 2011 shooting death of <a href="http://homicidewatch.org/victims/mico-briscoe/" >Mico Brisco</a>, MPD said.</p> <p>The suspect was identified as <a href="http://homicidewatch.org/suspects/dwayne-hilton/" >Dwayne Hilton</a>; MPD said he was suspected of first-degree murder while armed in connection with Briscoe's death.</p> <p>Brisco was killed Nov. 26, 2011 in a shooting in the 1200 block of Mount Olivet Road, Northeast.
