DC Police Are Looking For The Person Who Beat A Tech Executive To Death Downtown: Know More Here

At two in the morning on February 2, after receiving reports of an assault, officers from the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) arrived at the 1100 block of 15th Street NW in downtown Washington, D.C., which is ten minutes’ walk from the White House.

According to a press release from MPD, “Officers located an adult male suffering from life-threatening injuries as a result of an assault.”

After being taken by the police to a nearby hospital, the victim was declared dead on February 7.

Taneja was found lying on the pavement by the police when they arrived following the violent altercation outside a Greek restaurant, as reported by WUSA9.

MPD did not provide Fox News Digital with any additional information.

Taneja served as president and co-founder of Vienna, Virginia-based Dynamo Technologies.

A statement on Dynamo’s LinkedIn page states that the company offers “technology, project management and financial consulting solutions to the federal government.”

“A 5-year, $70 million contract award with the United States Department of Agriculture Office of the Chief Information Office Information Security Centre Programme and Security Management to provide mission-critical cybersecurity operations support across USDA agencies” was obtained by Dynamo and its partner, Alpha Omega, in June, according to a press release.

Fox News Digital Friday sent a request for comment to the corporation, which did not immediately respond.

Taneja obtained his master’s degree in science from George Mason University and his PhD in engineering from George Washington University in Washington, D.C., according to his LinkedIn profile.

A reward of up to $25,000 is being offered by MPD for information that results in an arrest in this case.

Authorities are requesting that anyone with information text 50411 to the department’s TEXT TIP LINE to report information anonymously. Alternatively, tipsters can contact police at 202-727-9099.

According to MPD figures, there were 274 killings in the nation’s capital in 2023. According to The Washington Post, the capital has the fifth-highest murder rate among large U.S. cities. The last time D.C. reported as many killings was in 1997, or 26 years ago.

In 2023, D.C. also saw record levels of carjacking. A teenage concertgoer staying in a hotel in the Northeast, a Texas representative, an FBI employee, an out-of-state instructor visiting Catholic University, and other people were among the victims of violent crime in the nation’s capital.
