THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT [UPDATE: Suspect Arrested — see below.] — 22-year-old Deoni Jones died at a hospital after being stabbed at a bus stop on the night of Feb. 2nd in Washington, D.C. While the D.C. police have yet to make a formal identification, two members of the D.C. Transgender Coalition (DCTC), says it’s Jones. Photos of Jones from them are posted on Facebook.

After the altercation a third person chased the attacker but returned to help the victim.

  1. So sad,and D.C. has a real problem with Transphobia.

  2. Hi, It’s the DC Trans Coalition. I’m a member. And no, i’ts not a serial killer, just a bunch of randoms.

  3. I agree too, Roberta. Serial killers don’t kill victims in front of witnesses.
