Three young girls arrested after disabled DC man fatally beaten to death on video

Three teenage girls have been detained and accused in relation to the death of a 64-year-old man in northwest Washington, D.C.

According to a press release, Metropolitan Police Department officers arrived at the 6200 block of Georgia Avenue just before 1 a.m. on Oct. 17, 2023, after receiving a report of a man down. When authorities arrived, they discovered Brown with injuries consistent with an assault. He died on the spot.

“He was just a peaceful, pleasant, and friendly individual. He didn’t bother anyone. “That’s the kind of person he was,” a close family friend told FOX 5 DC. According to local sources, Brown was physically challenged.

The suspects, whose identities have been withheld owing to their age, are accused of beating to death the victim, Reggie Brown, according to police. The beating was captured on video and shown in court Friday, according to local station NBC4. A medical examiner’s examination found that he died as a result of blunt force trauma, and the manner of death was homicide.

On Thursday, a 13-year-old girl was arrested and charged with second-degree murder in relation to Brown’s death. On Friday, a 13-year-old and a 12-year-old girl were both arrested and charged with second-degree murder.

A relative of the 12-year-old girl charged with Brown’s murder told FOX 5 that the kid was shot Friday morning inside her apartment, which is roughly four blocks away from the crime scene.

“She is going to come through. “There’s just a lot going on right now,” they explained. “This happened at roughly 3 a.m. I haven’t even gotten any sleep.”

The girl is expected to live.

Metropolitan Police say the crime is still under investigation, and the agency is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information. Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to contact police at 202-727-9099. To report anonymous information to the department’s text tip line, text 50411.

All three suspects are said to have a history of absenteeism, with one allegedly missing every day of school in 2024.

As early as this week, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser might propose a plan to hold district parents accountable if their children miss too many school days.

Some people believe that tackling the district’s truancy issue will help reduce youth crime, which has soared. According to a November study from the Office of the State Superintendent of Education, 60% of D.C. high school students were chronically absent during the 2022-2023 school year, which means they were missing for at least 10% of the school day.
