Karon Blake, 13, was tragically shot by a man from Washington, D.C., early on Saturday. Let’s examine the incident that occurred in DC in more detail.

What Took Place In DC?

The deceased kid was identified by police as Karon Blake from Northeast Washington. According to the police report, when the MPD, D.C. Fire, and Emergency Medical Services arrived on the scene at 3:55 a.m. in response to a call of a shooting, they discovered Karon suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

Karon was taken by D.C. Fire and EMS to a nearby children’s hospital, where he was later pronounced dead after efforts to save his life proved unsuccessful, according to the police.

When the unidentified resident went outside to investigate with his licenced pistol, he and Karon got into a confrontation that led to the man shooting the 13-year-old child, according to the report.

Tempering Moment

On Tuesday, D.C. Police Chief Robert J. Contee III defended delaying the release of the identity of the individual who shot and killed a 13-year-old boy he claimed to have seen breaking into automobiles, saying any charges will probably be decided by a grand jury after the investigation is over.

The incident has sparked a contentious debate about crime and accountability among lawmakers and residents, particularly about the District’s youth. Zachary Parker (D-Ward 5), a recently elected member of the D.C. Council who represents the area where Karon was shot, is one of at least two lawmakers.

Karon, a Brookland Middle School student, was shot just before 4 a.m. on Saturday in the 1000 block of Quincy Street NE. Police haven’t provided many specifics about the incident, including the shooter’s identity.

Tuesday night’s community gathering at the Turkey Thicket Recreation Center was attended by more than 200 individuals, many of whom shouted out the police representative while demanding information about the shooting.
