    D.C. Police are searching for three suspects this morning after a deadly shooting in Northwest Washington late Saturday night. 

    Police responded to the scene at Georgia Avenue Northwest and W Street, near Howard University Hospital, just after 10 p.m.  The 20-year-old victim, who police have identified as Keenan Lee of Capitol Heights, was rushed to that hospital, but did not survive. 

    A police spokesperson confirmed that Lee was not a student at Howard and said that the shooting appeared to stem from an earlier altercation.

    No arrests have been made.  Howard University was celebrating its homecoming this weekend.

    Police are asking anyone with information about the case to call (202) 727-9099 or 1-888-919-2746. Anonymous information may be submitted at 1-800-673-2777 or by texting 50411.
