the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner had
determined that it was a homicide.
“He was a wonderful man,” his wife, Lavita Drummings,
said Sunday. “A family man.”
She said they had been married for five years after
being together for 25 years and that they had
three daughters and a son.
They had been sweethearts since their days at
 Suitland High School, she said.
Her husband had gone out with friends to an

The discovery of the homicide Saturday morning
 followed two fatal shootings Friday in the Anacostia
 area of Southeast Washington. It was reported at a
time when the number of homicides in the District
 has increased sharply over last year.
