At approximately 10:22 p.m. on Saturday, June 2, 2007, police were called to the front of 1439 Girard Street, NW, for the report of a shooting. Upon arrival officers located 13-year-old Terry Cutchin, of the 1300 block of Columbia Road, NW, suffering from a gunshot wound to the body. He was taken to the Washington Hospital Center’s MedStar Unit and pronounced dead. A second victim, a 23-year-old male, was driven by private vehicle to an area hospital with a reported gunshot wound to the right arm. He was treated and released. His name is being withheld because he is considered a witness in this case.
As a result of the ongoing investigation by members of the department’s Violent Crimes Branch an arrest warrant was issued for the arrest of 16-year-old Domenic Denzell Bond of the 1800 block of Bryant Street, N.E. At approximately 1:50 this morning, Thursday, June 14, 2007, members of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force* and the department’s Violent Crimes Branch arrested Domenic Bond, without incident, at his home. He is charged as an adult with Murder Two While Armed and is expected to be arraigned today.
“This is a good example of excellent police work with the help of the community. Investigators are continuing to talk to residents and are following additional leads,” said Chief of Police Cathy Lanier. “The murder of any resident... particularly a young person cut down in their prime, is unacceptable, and MPD will exhaust every measure to bringing this case to a close.”
*Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force is a unit composed of members of the Metropolitan Police Department and the United States Marshals Service.
