A 23-year-old Dale City man was charged with murder by Washington, D.C., Metropolitan Police in connection with a May 24 shooting there, authorities said Monday.
Michael Carlos Duncan, of the 4400 block of Eames Lane in Dale City, is accused by police of shooting Arnez Henderson several times at 2:18 a.m. May 24.
Henderson, 24, of 12th Street, in the Northeastern area of the District, died at Washington Hospital Center that night of multiple gunshot wounds to the head and body, police said.
Metropolitan police discovered the murder after being called to the 3900 block of Martin Luther King Avenue in the Southwest area of the District, police said in a press release.
Duncan was arrested July 3, although it was unclear where the arrest was made or by whom.
Metropolitan police spokesman Officer Quentin Peterson could not say Wednesday if the murder was drug-related. Duncan ran up to Henderson and yelled, “Where the money at?” immediately preceding the shooting, according to an arrest warrant filed in the District’s Superior Court.
Duncan — nicknamed “Li’l Mike” — jumped out of a beige van and shot Hernandez with a silver hand gun, police allege in the warrant.
Duncan has an extensive criminal arrest record. He was convicted of the following charges in 1999: Possession of paraphernalia, misdemeanor assault and battery, trespassing, two counts of driving without an operator’s license and misdemeanor possession of marijuana. He was convicted of driving on a suspended license and failure to appear in court in 2002.
