Wanda Wright, 48, and Ebony Wright, 32, of Southeast, D.C., died of gunshot wounds
Homicide detectives from the Washington, D.C., Metropolitan Police Department are investigating a Monday shooting that left two women dead and one injured.
Members of the D.C. Fire Department and EMS responded to reports of a fire at a home near the 2300 Block of Good Hope Court in Southeast, and moments later, police were dispatched to reports of a shooting, according to the MPD. Authorities also discovered two additional females — Wanda Wright, 48, and Ebony Wright, 32, of Southeast, D.C. — with gunshot wounds. The two women died as a result of their injuries. Executive Assistant Chief Ashan Benedict said during a Monday night press briefing that a 3-month-old baby was also rescued from the scene.
Benedict also said he believed the shooting was a “domestic incident,” and that police think the suspect started the fire, though police are still investigating. The MPD is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for anyone with information that could lead to the arrest and conviction of the suspect. Anyone can call 202-727-9099 with tips or send anonymous information via text message to 50411.
