At approximately 4:20 am on Sunday, October 16, 2005, police were called to the fourth floor hallway of an apartment building, located at 1730 7th Street, NW, for the report of a shooting. Upon arrival they located 22-year-old Maurice Temoney, of a second floor apartment at 1730 7th Street, NW, suffering from apparent multiple gunshot wounds to the body and head. DC Fire Department emergency medical personnel were called to the scene but found no signs consistent with life. He was taken to the Office of the DC Medical Examiner and pronounced dead.
The preliminary investigation indicates that Mr. Temoney was attending a party in an apartment on the fourth floor when he became involved in an argument. The argument is believed to have continued into the hallway where he was apparently shot.
The case is under investigation by members of the department's Violent Crimes Branch. Anyone with information about this case is asked to call police at (202) 727-9099.
The department currently offers a reward of up to $25,000 to anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for any homicide committed in the District of Columbia.
