Rashid Caviness-Bey found guilty in 2011 murder

A District man has been found guilty of shooting a teen to death two years ago.

Prosecutors say Rashid Caviness-Bey, 20, shot and killed Osman Al-Akbar, 19, during an attempted armed robbery in August 2011.

As he was biking from his girlfriend's home in Northwest, Al-Akbar encountered Caviness-Bey and two other teens near the 2600 block of University Place NW. The group tried to rob Al-Akbar and then shot him in the back three times, police say. He was shot a fourth time in the face and died in the street.

Police found Caviness-Bey and the other suspects hiding at the bottom of a basement stairwell nearby. Their guns were also found, along with clothing they tossed into trash bins.

Sentencing is set for August.
