South Capitol Street five face new charges
Five men previously indicted on murder charges for shootings on South Capitol Street last year that prompted legislation to thwart youth violence face 30 new charges in a superseding indictment, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District, the Washington Times reports.
The indictment links a series of violent attacks during an eight-day span in March 2010 in Southeast D.C., which included five murders and nine shootings not resulting in death, the Times reports.
The defendants, all from D.C., are: Sanquan Carter, 20, his brother, Orlando Carter, 21; Jeffrey D. Best, 22; Robert Bost, 22; and Lamar J. Williams, 22. The five all face counts of conspiracy, assault with intent to kill while armed and other offenses in the new indictment, according to the Washington Times.
