Man Arrested in Northwest DC Homicide

WASHINGTON — Police in D.C. say they’ve arrested a man in connection with a homicide in northwest Washington.

The Metropolitan Police Department says they’ve charged 21-year-old Jeffery Bernard Neal of northwest Washington in connection with the death of 22-year-old Leon Young. Young was found dead Thursday in the 1800 block of Eighth Street. The medical examiner determined Young died of blunt force injuries.

Neal was arrested Friday. He did not appear to have a listed telephone number, and it was not clear if he has an attorney.
