Off-Duty Cop Kills Masked Gunman

A Clinton man is dead after an off-duty officer shot him, D.C. police said Sunday.

The D.C. officer was sitting in his personal vehicle on the 5300 block of B Street in Southeast around 5 a.m. Sunday morning when a masked gunman tried to rob him, police said.

The off-duty officer apparently got out of his vehicle and exchanged gunfire with Jelani Slay, 34.

Slay was killed, but not before shooting a second person who was with the officer.

The second person is expected to recover.
