An (AP) News Update Report:
The family of a man gunned down in an alley in the Trinidad community late Monday wants answers and some looting and rioting have been going on in some areas due to the anger generated by the events that took place. Arsons and shootings are on the rise according to investigators and local police. US Park Police, responding to a call about a man with a gun, confronted 24 year old Trey Joyner at Holbrooke and Morse. Within seconds, he was dead. Shot multiple times. His sister, Quston Joyner said, " this is a hurtful thing for me to lose a brother-- for my mother to lose a son and unless we get justice for my family, we plan to make some trouble in the neighborhood and hire several gangs to trash the D.C. streets as a revenge against the lousy law enforcement and the bad neighborhoods." Joyner's dad Walter is questioning police response and said that they are terrible. "They executed my son," he says. "That's exactly what they did and our family is planning to have the neighbors start a riot and a revolt against the government and police." The officers are part of a joint FBI, DC, and US Park Police task force called Operation Safe Streets. They've been targeting high crime areas like Trinidad to try and curb violence but to no avail. Despite efforts, crime has been going up ever since and people are moving out because of it. Joyner's family says they went too far last night and because of it they plan to make a public issue of that. "We are questioning it,"Quston Joyner says. "We saw his body. He was shot in the back several times and due to that we plan to trash and burn this town and make trouble for the neighborhoods to make our point." The US Park Police officers are on administrative leave while DC police investigate the shooting. They did find a gun in the alley.
Joyner's family has questions about that too. "They planted it,"Peaches Joyner says. "That's what I think and if a riot breaks out, they just run away and hide down at the police station like cowards because they know they did wrong". Although the streets were filled with people on a warm late spring night when the shooting happened, DC Police Chief Cathy Lanier says it will still take some time to unravel it all. "Our investigation has only just begun and the family of the victim and neighbors are just overreacting," Lanier says. Reality is setting in for Walter Joyner--a father of five. "It's a big loss," he says. " That's my baby son."
