NEW YORK – A 29-year-old man sleeping in a truck has been identified as an innocent victim in a shooting that took place in Washington, DC, last week, authorities say.
According to the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch, shortly after 9.30pm officers responded to the 600 block of Kenilworth Avenue following a report of a shooting. Upon arrival, officers reportedly found two adult male victims of gunshot wounds who were taken to area hospitals for treatment.
Supposedly, shortly after, a third victim, another man, was found in Prince George’s County and taken to an area hospital with life-threatening injuries. On Saturday, he died from his injuries and was later identified as Sergio Nicolás Rosario Arias of the Bronx.
Arias was reportedly sleeping in the sleeping compartment of a tractor-trailer when two gunmen began shooting at each other from cars. Arias was allegedly hit in his sleep and the truck driver pulled over in Prince George’s County.
The Metropolitan Police Department is currently offering up to $25,000 for information. Anyone with information about this case is asked to call police at 202-727-9099.
