17-year-old Georgetown shooting victim dies after being taken off life support

The 17-year-old who was shot in Georgetown last Monday night has been pronounced dead after being on life support all weekend, ABC7 news reports this morning.

The shooting occurred on Halloween night during the traditional M Street celebration, when two groups of teenagers got into a fight on the street’s 2800 block around 11:00 p.m., and three shots were reportedly fired.

The boy’s death is the first among the at least six victims shot in the District on Halloween night. So far, Metro Police have made one arrest, that of a 24-year-old being charged with carrying a pistol without a license, in connection with the Georgetown crime.
