UPDATE: MPD Detectives said that an arrest has been made in the fatal stabbing which occurred in the 1600 block of Kenilworth Avenue, northeast.
Members of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested 33 year-old David Bolden of southeast, in the fatal stabbing of Lamont Antonio Devore. Bolden was charged with murder.
The stabbing of Devore came during other of violent attacks throughout the district.
MPD has identified two men who they say were stabbed to death in D.C. early Tuesday morning, marking five homicides in just four days.
Police say 33-year-old Dwayne Edward Brisbon was found unconscious inside a vehicle that had crashed into a restaurant near the intersection of 5th Street and Florida Avenue. They say the Brisbon, an Upper Marlboro resident, had stab wounds to the neck. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.
Brisbon was a CT Scan Technologist at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, officials confirm, and was named a "SuperStar" at the hospital in 2009 for his exceptional work and dedication to patients. He worked at the hospital for 12 years.
In his Upper Marlboro neighborhood he was known simply as a good guy who liked motorcycles.
“He was just a fun guy,” says Ryan Washington. “It’s just not gonna be the same. I just wish his soul in a better place.”
Early Tuesday morning, the father of a young son became D.C.'s fifth homicide victim in four days.
Just after 2 a.m., police answered a call for a single vehicle car crash on Florida Avenue. They found Brisbon dead in the car. He had been stabbed. From witness accounts, police have put together only bits and pieces of what happened.
“The victim we know was driving down the street at some point he pulled over, got out of his vehicle and became involved in an argument with a subject at that point the subject stabbed him,” says Commander George Kulik of the MPD. “He got back in his vehicle and tried to drive away.”
Kucik says he doesn't believe brisbon and his killer knew each other and it may have been a random encounter which brought them together.
On the MedStar Washington Hospital Center’s website, Brisbon says his co-workers and the people he met were the best things about his job. His friend says he'll be missed.
About 30 minutes earlier, police say Devore, of Northeast, was found suffering from multiple stab wounds, including a cut to the abdomen, around 1:20 a.m. Tuesday in the 1600 Block of Kenilworth Avenue NE. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital, police say.
It's unclear what led to either incident, but police are investigating both Devore and Brisbon's deaths as homicdes.
