Five arrested in supposed beating death of man at DC Agnostic Front show

The Washington Post reported that five men involved in the beating death of 27-year-old, Ali Ahmed Mohammed, outside of the nightclub, DC9, after an Agnost Front concert last Thursday evening were being charged with aggravated assault.

For a yet-unknown reason, Mohammed was denied entry into the club, resulting in him becoming angry to the point of hurling a brick through the front window of DC9.  The five club staff (one of which was co-owner, William Spieler) then chased Mohammed, eventually caught up to him, and pummeled the man as one of the employees held Mohammed down.

Witnesses of the event told police that the club’s staff threw Mohammed to the ground and repeatedly stomped on his head and body.

Officers arrived on the scene at 2:30am Friday and found Mohammed unconscious and not breathing.  He was taken to Howard University Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 3:15am.

All five men were charged with aggravated assault (not second-degree murder) and were released after a court proceeding on Saturday, but were still placed in a high-intensity supervision program which includes electronic monitoring.
