For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Columbia

            WASHINGTON – Traquon McCalip, 21, of Washington D.C., was arraigned today in U.S. District Court on a six-count indictment charging him in a March 20, 2024, daylight shooting, in the 3900 block of Minnesota Avenue, NE, that left another man wounded. The indictment was announced today by U.S. Attorney Matthew M. Graves, FBI Special Agent in Charge David J. Scott of the Washington Field Office’s Criminal and Cyber Division, and Chief Pamela A. Smith of the Metropolitan Police Department.

            McCalip, aka “TwinGlock,” who was previously convicted of a firearm possession offense in Prince George’s County, Maryland, is charged with aggravated assault while armed; two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime of violence; two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon; and unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition, specifically, a Canik TP9SF Elite 9mm handgun and 9mm ammunition.

            On March 20, 2024, a Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) officer arrived on the scene of the shooting after hearing gunfire, and McCalip fled in a vehicle. A police pursuit by officers from the Fifth and Sixth districts, with use of FALCON, the MPD Air Support Unit, ultimately led to McCalip being stopped at 1805 Bladensburg Road, NE. A 9mm Canik magazine and additional ammunition was found in the driver’s seat of the car McCalip was driving, and a 9mm Canik handgun was recovered from the scene of the shooting.    

            The case is being investigated by the FBI’s Washington Field Office and the Metropolitan Police Department. It is being prosecuted by Trial Attorney Ethan Cantor of the Department of Justice’s Criminal Division and Violence Reduction and Trafficking Offenses Section of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia.

            An indictment is merely an allegation, and all defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
