Kenyatta Lee Oglesby Wiki – Kenyatta Lee Oglesby Biography
A Washington, D.C., man was arrested in connection with a Virginia shooting that left a young girl dead and four teenagers wounded. Kenyatta Lee Oglesby, 20, has been charged with murder, aggravated malicious wounding, and using a firearm in commission of a felony in the Jan. 4 incident, according to a press release from the Prince William County Police Department.
Officers were called to a Dumfries home just before 11 a.m. after being notified of a 911 call from someone who claimed to have been shot, the release states. When cops arrived, they were met outside the house by a 17-year-old gunshot victim, who police said was in a relationship with Oglesby.
This prompted officers to enter the house, where they discovered four more victims, all of whom were the 17-year-old girl’s siblings, authorities said.

A 3-year-old girl was pronounced dead at the scene, and the other victims – ranging in age from 14 to 17 – were taken to local hospitals with “life-threatening injuries,” according to police. A 14-year-old boy was also inside the home at the time of the shooting, but wasn’t injured.
Their conditions were not immediately provided by authorities as of Jan. 6. However, on a GoFundMe launched for the family’s medical and funeral expenses, a loved one claimed the surviving victims are stable, but have a long road to recovery ahead.
According to police, Oglesby had been staying with the family and shot his 17-year-old girlfriend during an argument outside the home before going inside to the basement, where he shot the four other victims.
He was quickly identified as a suspect, and arrested at a nearby business by officers who had been canvassing the area searching for him, authorities said. Police claimed Oglesby became “uncooperative” with investigators when asked about what led up to the shooting.
