Metropolitan Police detectives are investigating an “undetermined death” on the 2300 block of Wisconsin Ave., according to a department press release.
Officers and emergency vehicles responded to a call for help shortly before 2 a.m. on Saturday, June 21, the release states. They found Michael Hrizuk, 57, of Arlington injured on the ground and took him to the hospital. On Wednesday, July 2, Hrizuk “succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead,” according to the release. The cause and manner of death have not yet been determined.
NBC4 has reported that Hrizuk’s injuries were caused by an assault, and this jibes with what we have heard. Although MPD Commander Michael Reese did not respond to our earlier inquiry on this matter, we’ve been told by two sources that the site of the incident was the alley behind Good Guys (2311 Wisconsin Ave.) and that Hrizuk’s assailant seemed to be a young white man.
The Metropolitan Police Department is asking anyone with information about this case to call them at (202) 727-9099. Anonymous information may be submitted to the department’s TEXT TIP LINE by text messaging 50411.
