Local Briefing: Details Emerge in C Street Stabbing, Street Named for Local Activist, & Hendrix Starts Leasing


Details Emerge in the Murder of David Norwood

The Washington Post has more information on the Easter Sunday homicide of 79 year old David Norwood in the 600 block of C Street, and 21 year old Malcolm Amir Cunningham who is charged with second degree murder while armed in the killing. Norwood was stabbed multiple times, and an anonymous text tip about a man disposing of a knife in a recycling bin led police to the discovery of his body inside the rowhouse. Cunningham had reportedly been living living in the home, but had moved out in the weeks before after making threats to kill Norwood and others.

Does the fire/EMS department turn off their sirens at night? Not sure that I could live so close to the station.

I live not far down the street (still Florida Ave) and I hear the sirens, but you get used to them. They sort blend in with the traffic noise from Florida Ave after a while. I have central air and keep the windows in the front closed, but I also have older windows. The traffic/siren noise was more noticeable back when I relied on window units for a/c. I think with newer windows the noise would not be a big deal, particularly if the developer paid attention to sound dampening.

Malcolm Amir Cunningham does not sound like a good person at all.
