An FBI custodian who was killed after leaving his mother’s house in Southwest Washington D.C. was struck by a stray bullet, police said.

Gabriel Turner was headed to the store on March 24 when a confrontation between two men ended in gunfire, the Washington Post reports. 

Turner was struck in the upper back, and the 46-year-old was founded dead at 11:20 a.m.

“He was, in fact, an unintended target,” Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier said at a Monday news conference. “This is one of those cases that unfortunately we talk about too often in recent months.”

“This was just a senseless tragic murder that should have never happened,” Lanier said.

The alleged shooter, Kelby Ronald Gordon, was charged with second-degree murder.
