    D.C. police are investigating a fatal shooting in the 1200 block of Trenton Place, Southeast.

    Investigators say that 19-year-old Antwan Lamont Petty was shot shortly after 9:00 p.m. Saturday. Petty was later pronounced dead at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

    This is the second fatal shooting to take place in the 1200 block of Trenton Place, Southeast in less than three months. On April 13, 31-year-old Sirocco Delonte Johnson of Southeast was shot to death.

    No arrests have been made in either shooting.

    Further along Trenton Street is the site of the murder of Latisha Frazier, who was murdered in a dispute over missing money in August 2010. A total of six arrests were made in that crime.

    Anyone with information about the murders of Petty or Johnson is asked to call (202) 727-9099 or text 50411.
