Man found slain near Calvert Street NW

The Washington Post Sunday - - COMMUTER - — Peter Her­mann

A man who was re­port­edly home­less was found with a fa­tal wound Fri­day night near the St. Luke’s Mis­sion Cen­ter in the 3600 block of Calvert Street NW near Wis­con­sin Av­enue, author­i­ties said.

The man was iden­ti­fied as Joel John­son, 53, and po­lice said the death was ruled a homi­cide.

St. Luke’s merged with Metropoli­tan Me­mo­rial United Methodist Church, and its se­nior pas­tor said John­son was not one of those who stayed at the church’s shel­ter. The pas­tor, the Rev. Charles Parker, called the death “a great tragedy” and “an in­dict­ment of our com­mu­nity.”
