D.C. police are investigating the city’s first homicide of 2013.

A man was stabbed in the 2800 block of Alabama Avenue SE about 3:30 p.m. Thursday. He was taken to a hospital where he died.

Raasheem Jamal Rich, 38, of Northeast, was stabbed after an argument at a liquor store, police said.

Police have what they hope is a significant lead, News4's Jackie Bensen reported. The people who fled the scene on foot left behind a blue minivan that was taken away as evidence.

In 2012, D.C. had its lowest murder rate since the 1950s.
