Northeast deadly shooting investigation

WASHINGTON, DC — District officers are investigating a murder that happened Monday night.

Detectives say they got a call for a shooting around 8:40 p.m. on the 4300 block of Benning Road, Northeast. When officers arrived they found an 18-year-old suffering from a gunshot wound. Ayana McAllister, of Upper Marlboro, was transported to a nearby hospital where she was initially listed in critical condition before succumbing to her injuries on Tuesday.

Before McAllister was taken to the hospital, detectives say another woman suffering a gunshot wound, also sought treatment at an area hospital for non-life threatening injuries. No word if both shootings are connected.
