Authorities continue to investigate two separate stabbings in the District that left two people dead.
Police responded to the first incident at Quarles Street, near Kenilworth Avenue NE at 1:19 a.m. on Tuesday.
When they arrived on the scene, they found a man suffering from stab wounds. The victim, 34-year-old Lamont Antonio Devore, of Northeast, was transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Then, just after 2 a.m., officers responded to the 500 block of Florida Avenue NW for a car accident.
When officers arrived at the scene, though, they found 33-year-old Dwayne Edward Brisbon suffering from stab wounds.
Police said Brisbon crashed his vehicle into a light pole in the 500 block of Florida Avenue. EMS transported him to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Brisbon had been celebrating a promotion with friends at Marvin on 14th Street, sources said. Afterward, he was driving on Florida Avenue when he got into an argument with a man on the street. He was stabbed when he got out of the car, sources said, then he tried to drive away but crashed.
Brisbon was a CT tech at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, which released the following statement:
MedStar Washington Hospital Center’s leadership and associates are deeply saddened upon learning of the death of Dwayne Brisbon. He was a respected radiology technologist, a valued colleague and a treasured friend. He certainly made a mark on the organization during his 12 years here, having earned our prestigious SuperStar award for service.
The Hospital Center and its associates send their condolences to Mr. Brisbon’s family.
MedStar said that Brisbon trained in the radiology education program and his first job was as a patient transport technician.
Upon completing his education, he worked his way up to a senior position as a CT technologist and had just been promoted a few weeks ago.
The stabbings make five homicides in D.C.in four days and 28 so far this year, down five from last year, News4's Pat Collins reported.
District police are offering an award up to $25,000 to anyone that provides information that leads to an arrest or conviction.
