Michael Leo Reese, 27, of Southeast Washington, was found suffering from a gunshot wound inside a home in the 2500 block of Nicol Circle just before 6 a.m. Sunday. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police arrested Vincent Michael Martin, 32, and have a warrant for Demarco Gregory James, 30. Both Martin and James are listed with an address in the 1500 block of 45th Street in Northeast Washington.

Police believe Martin came with James as they entered the home of James’ ex-girlfriend. James shot Reese, police say.

James is charged with first-degree murder. Martin is charged with first- and second-degree murder.

Most of the neighbors who spoke with ABC7 asked that their identities be concealed, for fear of retaliation. But people living nearby have nothing to fear, police say.

Neighbors say the house is a rental. It has a no-trespassing sign hanging in a window and the lawn outside is unmowed.
