Hot! Two Arrested In Connection Of Murdering D.C. Rapper Swipey

The shooting of a popular D.C. rapper known as Swipey occurred during an attempted robbery at a family party he was attending in August, according to details released Monday as Prince George’s County police announced arrests in the case.

Police arrested two District men over the weekend in the killing of Douglas Brooks, 18, known as Swipey, who was shot in the head in the parking lot of a Suitland apartment building Aug. 21.

One of those arrested, Diante Brewer, 19, of Southwest Washington, was linked to the scene by a GPS tracking device he was wearing under court order from a previous case, said Capt. Anthony Schartner, assistant commander of the criminal investigations division for county police. Details of the previous case were not immediately available.

Police said Brewer and Deshawn Watkins, 18, of Southeast Washington, were two of up to five would-be robbers who plotted to storm a party hosted by a relative of Brooks’s. The attackers did not make it inside or rob partygoers, according to police, who said that before the plan could be carried out, a confrontation occurred in a parking lot and shots were fired.
