June 01, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

An overnight spasm of homicidal violence in the District of Columbia ended near dawn with seven men dead and three wounded, including a triple slaying after a street argument, a drive-by shooting near an elementary school, a deadly domestic dispute and a craps game that ended in a fusillade of bullets, police said.

All the killings, including the slaying of a man found with his throat cut in his car near his home, occurred within about a two-mile radius in sections of northeast and southeast Washington.
