Three young girls have been arrested and charged in connection with the death of a 64-year-old man in northwest Washington, D.C.

Metropolitan Police Department officers responded to the 6200 block of Georgia Avenue just before 1 a.m. on Oct. 17, 2023, for a report of a man down, according to a press release. Upon arrival, officers found Brown with trauma consistent with an assault. He died at the scene.

“He was just a quiet, nice, polite person. He didn’t bother anybody. That’s the type of person he was,” a close family friend told FOX 5 DC. Local reports said Brown was physically handicapped.

The suspects, whose names are being withheld due to their age, are accused of beating to death the man, who police identified as Reggie Brown. Video played in court Friday showed the beating, local NBC4 reported. A medical examiner’s autopsy revealed he died of blunt force trauma and the manner of death was ruled a homicide.

On Thursday, a 13-year-old girl was arrested and charged with second-degree murder in connection with Brown’s death. On Friday, a 13-year-old girl and a 12-year-old girl were also arrested and charged with second-degree murder.

All three suspects reportedly have long-standing truancy issues — one allegedly did not attend a single day of classes in 2024.
