17-year-old Alleged Gang Member Arrested For Armed Carjacking Of FBI Agent In Dc

Wagswoofs – A 17-year-old alleged gang member has been apprehended by the police for the armed carjacking incident that took place last week in Washington, DC. The victim of the carjacking was an off-duty female FBI agent.

A schoolboy named Devonta Lynch was apprehended on Monday and charged as an adult for the assault that took place last Wednesday afternoon. The authorities are still on the lookout for another suspect involved in the incident.

According to court documents cited by Fox 5 DC, he was apprehended at his residence, where law enforcement discovered a handgun magazine, two boxes containing 50 live rounds of 9mm ammunition, and a set of black Nike sneakers that matched the ones he was wearing during the carjacking.


While standing outside her car near the Lincoln Memorial, the federal agent was abruptly knocked to the ground as she zipped up her jacket with the door open.

I recalled the moment when I was lying on my back, gazing upwards, and finding myself face to face with one of the attackers. It was then that I realized they were pointing a gun at me, demanding my keys and phone.

According to the documents, the FBI agent was overpowered and robbed of her possessions after a brief struggle.


According to the filings, the agent was left with a cut lip as the gunman and his accomplice fled the scene in the agent’s car, speeding away from the 100 block of 12th Street SE.

Surveillance footage captured the suspects fleeing on foot, and approximately 15 minutes later, the victim’s car was discovered abandoned nearby, according to the documents.

According to the report, detectives received an anonymous tip that Lynch, along with the other suspect, were members of the Area 71 gang. The footage supposedly identified Lynch as the driver.


Lynch, a student at High Road Upper School, is facing assault charges in an unrelated incident that took place on November 9.

Lynch will remain in a juvenile detention facility without bond until his initial court appearance on Monday.
