The Washington Post reports that 26 year old Arvel Lee Stuart has succumbed to his injuries following a severe beating. Stuart was discovered injured about 9:10pm in the 2200 block of H Street Sunday night. This is in the Carver-Langston area.

I'm a little confused because, while the Washington Post suggests the man's injuries stem from a beating, here's part of an initial MPD statement regarding an Assault with Intent to Kill in that block at the same time. I'm not sure if these are really separate incidents or a conflict in reporting the same injuries. I assume the latter:

Members of the Fifth District received a call for an individual who may have been the victim of a shooting, in the 2200 block of H Street, Northeast.  Upon arrival, officers discovered an adult male, suffering from an apparent gunshot wound.  DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services personnel transported the victim to a local hospital.

A further statement from MPD:

On Sunday, June 21, 2015, at approximately 2110 hrs., members of the Fifth District of the Metropolitan Police Department received a call for the report of a shooting victim in the courtyard in the 2200 block of H Street, Northeast, Washington, D.C. Upon the units arrival to the scene, they located a victim lying in the courtyard area suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported to the Med-Star Unit of the Washington Hospital Center and admitted in critical condition, unconscious, suffering from a gunshot wound to the head.
On today's date, Tuesday, June 23, 2015, the victim succumbed to his injuries.

Any information as to whether the victim lived in the neighborhood? Thoughts to his family and friends.

The Washington Post indicated that Stuart lived in NE DC, but that's all I know.
