This is a little south of the area that I normally cover, but I wanted to share the following video because of the heinous nature of this particular crime. 28 year old Jason Emma had recently moved to Capitol Hill, and was living in a rowhouse. At 2:15am Christmas Eve MPD responded to a report of gunshots and a male slumped over the steering wheel of a car. Emma had been shot 13 times, and was dead by the time police arrived. The motive for this brutal murder was apparently robbery. It happened at 12th & C NE.
The Metropolitan Police Department currently offers a reward of up to $25,000 to anyone that provides information which leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons wanted for any homicide committed in the District of Columbia. Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the police at (202) 727-9099. Additionally, anonymous information may be submitted to the department’s TEXT TIP LINE by text messaging 50411.
The video below is short, and you can't see much, but MPD is hoping someone might be able to identify the two men who appear in it.
