WASHINGTON – Three men from the District and Maryland -- Derrico Johnson, 19, Ronald Henderson, 18, and Daveon Robinson, 17 -- were arraigned today on first-degree murder, conspiracy, and other charges in connection with two murders and a drive-by shooting, announced U.S. Attorney Matthew M. Graves, and Chief Pamela Smith of the Metropolitan Police Department.
Johnson and Robinson are residents of D.C.; Henderson is a resident of Maryland. Henderson and Robinson were charged under Title 16.
The 26-count indictment charges each defendant with conspiracy. Derrico Johnson was charged with two counts of first degree murder while armed and three counts of assault with intent to kill while armed stemming from the April 12, 2022 murder of 32-year old Clayton Marshall and May 26, 2022 murder of 16-year old Justin Johnson; Ronald Henderson was charged with one count of first degree murder while armed and four counts of assault with intent to kill stemming from the May 26, 2022 murder of Justin Johnson and a January 2, 2023 drive-by shooting at Alabama Convenience Store that injured two bystanders; and Daveon Robinson was charged with two counts of assault with intent to kill while armed stemming from the January 2, 2023 drive-by shooting at Alabama Convenience Store. Ronald Henderson and Derrico Johnson were also indicted for firearms-related offenses from March and April of 2023, respectively. All three defendants were ordered held without bond. A trial date is scheduled for August 18, 2025.
According to the indictment, the three defendants are members of a crew called “Get Back Gang,” which is associated with the Henson Ridge neighborhood in 7D and a broader group driving violence in DC known as “Fox 5 Gang.” Over the past two years, the defendants and others participated in several homicides and non-fatal shootings, including:
- On April 12, 2022, Derrico Johnson was picked up in a stolen vehicle and driven to the 2200 block of Savannah Street SE. At about 12:20 p.m., Derrico Johnson briefly exited the vehicle and fired several rounds in the direction of Shipley Market. Clayton Marshall, who does not appear to have been the intended target, was shot and killed and another individual was injured.
- On May 26, 2022, Derrico Johnson, Ronald Henderson, and another individual walked to the Savannah Terrace Circle, where16-year-old Justin Johnson (aka “23 Rackz”), the victim, had posted as his location to Instagram earlier that morning. About 11:20 a.m., Derrico Johnson and Ronald Henderson fired several shots from 200 feet away in the direction of Justin Johnson, who was shot and killed while standing feet away from an infant child on a scooter.
- On January 2, 2023, Ronald Henderson and Daveon Robinson were riding in the back seat of a vehicle. At about 4:48pm, as the vehicle approached the Alabama Convenience Store, Henderson and Robinson fired several rifle and handgun rounds in the direction of the store, wounding two people. Armed Special Police Officers in the area witnessed the shooting and pursued the suspects through the Henson Ridge neighborhood to a home, where Henderson and Robinson were subsequently arrested.
This case is being investigated by the Metropolitan Police Department. It is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Ryan Sellinger and Jessica Keefer.
