Man fatally stabbed at North Capitol Street and Florida Avenue NW

D.C. police have made an arrest in the overnight stabbing of a 63-year-old man in the same Northwest Washington area where two men were shot, one fatally, less than two months ago.

Shortly after 10 p.m. Sunday, police received a call of a man down in the area of North Capitol Street and Florida Avenue NW, and found 63-year-old John Thomas Tillman  suffering from an apparent stab wound. Tillman was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead.

On Monday, police arrested 37-year-old Deon Anthony Thomas, of Northwest Washington, and charged him with second-degree murder while armed in Tillman’s death.

The killing comes just weeks after 28-year-old Freddy Bernard Hawkins and another man were shot outside a corner gas station. Hawkins was killed, and two men were arrested in the shooting.
