D.C.'s latest lottery winner claimed his winning ticket Thursday.

Michael Graham bought the $1 million Powerball ticket at the South Dakota Avenue Shell station.

A friend woke him up Monday night to tell him there was a winner, but Graham didn't think he had won, so he went back to sleep and checked the ticket the next morning.

"I lay across the bed most of the day, you know,” he said. “I had to get my thoughts together, how many people I was going to hide from.”

Graham said he plans to use the money to open a business and to fund summer camps for kids.
