Silver Spring resident Willie Parker, 45, was found “unconscious and unresponsive.” Parker remained on the scene until he was transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner after D.C. Fire and EMS said he displayed no signs consistent with life, police said.
The other victim was suffering from a gunshot wound that was not life-threatening and taken to a hospital, police said.
