    String of fatal shootings and other violence strike weekend in D.C. area
    By Freeman Klopott
    Examiner Staff Writer 3/1/09

    The shooting death of a 14-year-old boy in the District late Saturday night marked the beginning of a spree of local violence that included multiple shootings outside a Prince George’s County bar that left a 35-year-old man dead, police said.
    The Prince George’s shootings have the county’s new police chief calling for legislative action that would give the police department leverage to deal with county nightspots known for criminal activity.

    Arthur Daniels, 14, of Northeast, was shot to death around 11 p.m. Saturday on the 4100 block of Minnesota Avenue Southeast. Police said they were unsure of a motive in the shooting. Anyone with information is asked to call 202-727-9099.

    Then, around 2 a.m., a fight broke out inside The Sidelines bar on the 1200 block of Capital Center Boulevard in Largo, police said. The fight intensified when two groups of men were thrown out. Outside the bar, a black man about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing about 180 pounds opened fire, police said.

    The shooting killed Vincent Tyrrell Mastin, 35, of Bowie, and wounded six others. Their injuries were not life-threatening, police said.
    Stopping violence in and around Prince George’s bars and nightclubs has become a police department priority. In recent months, authorities have shut down nightclubs deemed problem spots. Police Chief Roberto Hylton said in a statement Sunday he planned to continue and escalate that policy to cover club events.

    “This type of violence is unacceptable, and I will be initiating policy changes to ensure that the police department is notified in advance of these events so that security arrangements can be reviewed prior to the event,” Hylton said. “I may also be requesting legislation that would give the department additional leverage to deal with these types of events.”

    Anyone with information about the shooting should call 301-772-4925 or 1-866-411-8477 (TIPS).

    Tell me again--why is a 14-yr old out at 11pm? Not blaming the victim--but had he been home, chances are he would still be alive.

    Although, I'm wondering why the criminal didn't register his firearm with DC Metro...that way they would be able to find him [/sarc]

    It appears that this is sort of the norm in DC. In the summer you will usually see a couple shootings of 10-15 year olds and the time is after midnight. Really makes you wonder.

    Incident A-It's 11 p.m. Do you know where your children are?

    Incident B-I don't know the area or the quality of the establishment, but it sounds like cleaning of the shallow end of the gene pool to me.

    Back when I worked for Montgomery County (next to both DC and PG) our department got a program going with liquor board, health dept and the States Attorney's office. There were about ten to fifteen clubs that we could expect to have fights in on any weekend. It took about six months but we were able to close them all down for various violations.

    As far as the fourteen year old...... I kid you not, about twenty years ago in the Adelphi area of PG county the community was up in arms over a four year old struck by an officers bullet from a shoot out with a local drug dealer. This kid was outside riding a tricycle at three A.M.
    No one even thought to ask why the kid was out there or what the parents were doing.....

    Which 'events' are they referring to?
