WASHINGTON — A double shooting in a Department of Public Works lot that killed one worker does not appear to be random, D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier says.

Police say 51-year-old Larry Hutchins of Suitland, Md., died after being shot around 6:15 a.m. Wednesday at the entrance to a lot in the 1200 block of W Street in Northeast.

The other victim is in good condition, Lanier says.

The two employees were shot while they were standing outside the DPW facility, says James Ivey, the head of their union.

It is not clear why they were shot.

Police are questioning two men who were wearing uniforms, Lanier says, but she would not confirm if they were DPW uniforms.

Mayor Adrian Fenty says the two workers who were shot were working at the time.

Many DPW employees get their jobs soon after release from prison, Ivey says, and are concerned for their safety, particularly after a stabbing at the same facility last year.

Trash and recycling collections in D.C. have been suspended for the day as a result of the shooting.

    In this day and time some people do not need a reason to murder someone, All the more reason to be on guard.
