Teen killed in suspected gang-related shooting
A 14-year-old Lewisdale boy was killed and a man was injured in a double shooting in Prince George's County that police believe was gang-related.

About 12:15 a.m. Wednesday, police went to the 2200 block of Sheridan Street. The boy, Eliezer Benjamin Reyes, was taken to a hospital and died. The other shooting victim was taken to a hospital in stable condition.

According to a preliminary investigation, the two victims were walking down the street with two other people when shots were fired at them from a vehicle. Two people in the group are documented gang members, but a police spokeswoman would not say which ones.

USAID worker dead after fire in Northwest D.C.
A 42-year-old U.S. Agency for International Development employee was found dead after a fire in his Bloomingdale-area home in the District, officials said.

About 7 p.m. Tuesday, firefighters went to a two-story brick rowhouse located at 1810 First St. NW. The bulk of the fire was on the first floor, but it spread to the rest of the building, Battalion Chief Brian Lee said. After the fire was knocked out, a body was found on the rowhouse's first floor. The victim has been identified as Jeffrey Nedoroscik, who had worked for USAID for many years. - Naomi Jagoda
