There were two homicides and several violent crimes this week in the District. • A woman was fatally shot in the District on Saturday, and police arrested a man in the death, authorities said.

The victim was identified as Ricky Williams, 41, of Southeast. No arrests have been made, and police did not comment on a possible motive. • A man is in critical condition after a fire at an apartment building in Southeast D.C.

Few details were immediately available, but police said a man and a woman were shot along 6th St. SE across from Charles Hart Middle School. Both victims were conscious and breathing following the shooting. • Metropolitan Police Department Detective Greggory Pemberton told a jury this week that he spent most of this year focused not only on one case, but primarily on one task: sifting through hundreds of hours of video footage that captured the roughly half-hour period on Jan. 20 when prosecutors say the defendants rioted. The government’s presentation demonstrated how prosecutors and police can pick apart a “black bloc” — a protest strategy particularly associated this year with the antifa movement in which participants dress in dark clothes and otherwise mask their appearance to thwart identifications by law enforcement.
