The murder of Carl Ashton O’Neil Gray Fitzgerald at 12:40 a.m. Tuesday on the 1300-block of U Street NW may be linked to a double “assassination” style murder in Fort Washington, Maryland, about a half hour later. (Read MPD news release on the murder.) This possibility is explained in a story from Channel 9-WUSA:
FORT WASHINGTON, Md. (WUSA) — The murder of a couple in their home early Tuesday may be linked to a fatal shooting about a half-hour before at a nightclub in DC, according to Prince George’s County police. Keith Jordan, 44, and his fiance, 48-year-old Audrey Bryant, were shot during a confrontation inside Bryant’s home in the 4000 block of Oaklawn Road in Fort Washington, just after 1 a.m. Tuesday.
According to another story in the Washington Examiner, police have “substantial leads” in both murders.
