    Family said Tryonn Garner had just been released from the New Beginnings center, a juvenile rehabilitation facility in Laurel.  According to a family member, he was supposed to go to a drug rehabilitation program in Pennsylvania, but because of an administrative delay, he was still in D.C. on October 31.

    In total, six people were shot on Halloween night in the District.  MPD Police Chief Cathy Lanier said that although the number of shootings was high that evening, violence and shooting incidents across D.C. are down from last year.
