Suad Karic, 20, was one of two people charged in connection with the shooting April 22 at the Roy Watson Youth Sports Complex, 854 Essex Parkway N.W. Police said two gangs gathered to fight. Shots were fired, and a 20-year-old man was wounded in the arm and stomach. Officers learned that rival gang members met in the parking lot so an individual from each group could fight.
Police were unable to pinpoint who fired the weapon so only gross misdemeanor third-degree riot charges were filed. Karic pleaded guilty to the charge Tuesday. Judge Joseph Chase stayed execution of a one-year jail sentence and gave Karic credit for 128 days already served in jail. No additional jail time was ordered. He was put on probation for two years and fined $132. Co-defendant Ahmed Omar Abukar, 24, pleaded guilty to the gross misdemeanor charge in January, and a felony first-degree aggravated robbery charge stemming from an unrelated incident was dismissed.
