WASHINGTON (AP) Police are investigating the shooting death of a D.C. Council intern.

Capt. Michael Farish said Monday that officers found the body of 18-year-old Alonte Sutton in a ravine in southeast Washington on Sunday. He had worked for Council member Michael Brown.

Farish says 911 calls on Saturday reported gun shots at Newcomb Street. The next day as police investigated a missing person report, they learned the teen had been chased into the woods, where officers found him.

Farish says police are interviewing witnesses and have identified a person of interest in the slaying. He says Sutton and the suspect were acquaintances and had at least one argument before the shooting.

Family members say Sutton had been in a dispute with a man after the teen refused to give the man's girlfriend a ride.
