Police have identified the teen who died following a gun fight with authorities that took place a few blocks northwest of Union Station Tuesday morning as a 19-year-old from Hyattsville, Md.

Daquan Hendrix was wanted in the Feb. 27 homicide of Tykia Dickerson in Northeast D.C., according to the Metropolitan Police Department.

The shootout ensued shortly after 6:17 a.m., when officers from a fugitive task force showed up on K Street Northwest with an arrest warrant.

Police say Hendrix produced a handgun and fired shots at the officers. The officers then returned fire, fatally wounding Hendrix.

First responders then arrived and transported Hendrix to a local hospital where he died.

No officers were injured in the gun battle and the department’s Internal Affairs Division is conducting an investigation.
