D.C. police arrived to the scene of the incident around 7:44 p.m. after receiving reports of a stabbing. Officers found Graham and another man suffering from stab wounds on the side of a residence in the area.
The second victim had been cut in the face and hand, and stabbed in the temple, according to police reports.
Both victims were taken to local hospitals. Graham later died and the other man was admitted in critical condition, according to police reports.
A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police Department, Sean Hickman, told the AFRO Aug. 28 that the case is still open, “There has not been an arrest and the case remains under investigation.”
According to police reports, the altercation was the result of a domestic dispute involving a “lover’s quarrel.”
Officials said there are no updates in this homicide, including lookout information of the suspects involved.
“This breaks my heart. I still want somebody to say it ain’t so,” Kenisha Dickey, one of Graham’s loved ones, wrote in his obituary guestbook.
As of Aug. 29, there have been 76 homicides in the District, and two homicides in the immediate area.
