    Five were killed in a multiple shooting on South Capital Street in southeast D.C. on March 30, 2010.

    The trial of five men accused of a series of shootings in Washington in 2010 that allegedly began over a bracelet and left five people dead starts Tuesday.
    Prosecutors have said the March 2010 shootings were the result of escalating violence that started after a gold-colored bracelet went missing.

    The violence resulted in the deaths of five people, including three teens gunned down in a drive-by shooting on South Capitol Street in southeast Washington.
