“My mother was a hardworking woman. She did anything for her kids. She did anything for whoever. Whoever. She took people in when they was down bad,” her daughter Shanya Washington said.
41-year-old Angela Washington of Suitland, Maryland was still in her uniform when she was killed around 8:30 p.m. in the 3300 blocks of 10th Place SE. DC police officers responded to the scene around 8:42 p.m. after they heard gunshots. That's where they found Washington, the mother of four and grandmother of one, deceased.
Angela was a captain for a security company and went there to check on officers who were on patrol her family told authorities and reporters. She had a gun in her possession but there was no evidence she had an opportunity to protect herself.
Authorities are on the lookout for a white Toyota Camry with dark, tinted windows.
The incident happened after a violent day in DC where two children were injured in separate shootings. Five people were hospitalized after a shooting in Southeast D.C. earlier, and later a man and a young boy were both injured in separate gunfire in Southeast DC.
“I just feel as though whoever did it, if it was their intentions to do it, I just hope they — I can say what I want to say? I just hope you die and burn in #e!!,” she added.
