A man who was fatally shot Tuesday afternoon in the parking lot of an auto-parts store in Southeast Washington has been identified as a 23-year-old D.C. resident, according to D.C. police.

Robbie Johnson of Southeast died at a hospital about two hours after the shooting, which occurred shortly before 3:30 p.m. in the 3900 block of South Capitol Street SE.

Johnson’s death takes D.C.’S homicide count this year to 201. The last year D.C. recorded more than 200 killings was 2003.

The shooting that killed Johnson also wounded another man, who police said was struck by multiple bullets and was hospitaliz­ed with wounds that were not thought to be lifethreat­ening. Police said the shooting happened in the parking lot of an Autozone auto-parts shop at the southern tip of Congress Heights, on the border with the Bellevue neighborho­od.
