DC Council Candidate Says He Is ‘Shocked, Angry and Embarrassed’ After Being Carjacked

Lexi Lonas, The Hill, January 18, 2022

Washington, D.C., council candidate Nate Fleming (D) said he was “shocked, angry and embarrassed” after he was a victim of a carjacking on Saturday.

In a statement issued Saturday, Fleming said he was about to leave a gas station when four men in an SUV pulled up to his car. They jumped out and pointed a gun at him, demanding his car keys.

The D.C. police said the suspects are four black men who were driving a black BMW 328i with Virginia tags, Wtop News reported.


“The police responded to this incident quickly and professionally, but we must put our force in [a position] to be more preventive of these types of crimes through stronger, community-based policing,” Fleming said.
