Wagswoofs – Police say a murder suspect turned himself in for reportedly shooting and killing Davon Fuller, who used to work for a DC councilwoman.
Deandre Miles, who lives in Northeast DC, was charged with first-degree murder with intent after Fuller’s body was found shot outside of a group of shops in the area earlier this year.
28-year-old Fuller, a former staff member for Councilwoman Brianne Nadeau, tragically lost his life on Monday, October 16th. The incident occurred in the 1500 block of Maryland Avenue NE, as confirmed by officials.
Police said the shooting happened just before 5:30 a.m., and the man from Northwest DC was taken to a nearby hospital, where he later died from his injuries.
Miles turned himself in on December 27.
Fuller, a former football player at UMass Dartmouth, served as a constituent services representative for Nadeau’s office from 2018 to 2019.
According to Nadeau, Davon, who was raised in Ward 1 and highly regarded in our community, was an exceptional worker in our office. Nadeau expressed deep sadness over his death, emphasizing that Davon was a devoted and nurturing father to his two young children. The loss of Davon’s life is a heartbreaking tragedy, and Nadeau fervently hopes that justice will be served in his case.
Markus Batchelor, an advocate, also expressed his grief over Fuller’s death on social media.
Commissioner Kelvin Brown described Fuller as a compassionate and dedicated father who prioritized the well-being of his community, striving to improve the lives of his neighbors.
In the past, Fuller’s history in DC has been marked by controversy. In 2019, he was arrested for a shooting incident where shots were fired at a man during a dispute in front of a marijuana pop-up in Northeast DC.
The Metropolitan Police Department did not provide any further details about Miles or his initial court appearance.
