A Baltimore man was shot and killed in Washington on Wednesday, according to Metropolitan Police.
Aryeh Wolf, 25, was identified as the victim. Members of the Sixth District responded at 3:41 p.m. to a reported shooting at 5100 block of Call Place, Southeast.
“Upon arrival, members located an adult male suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services responded to the scene and transported the victim to an area hospital where after all life-saving efforts, the victim was pronounced dead,” the police report stated.
Multiple news outlets reported that he was working in the city, installing solar panels, when he was shot in the back.
The assailant “walked up, produced a handgun and shot multiple times,” Capt. Kevin Kentish, a supervisor in the homicide unit, told The Washington Post. “It does not appear that anything was taken from the decedent.”
According to The Post, “the shooting comes amid a spike in homicides across the District, which police statistics show has recorded 132 killing this year, a 12 percent increase from this time last year.”
Wolf leaves behind a wife and six-month-old child, according to a report. His mother, Elise, is a principal at Bais Yaakov of Baltimore. A funeral was held on Aug. 11.
