CCN Reporter Charnice Milton Murdered
“Last night, the District’s press corp lost one of its own. Capital Community News (CCN) reporter Charnice Milton was tragically gunned down in an apparently random shooting near Good Hope Road at 9:40 p.m. as she was returning from covering the monthly meeting of the Eastern Market Community Advisory Committee.
“Charnice Milton was born on June 19, 1987 to Franice Milton. She lived with her mother in Benning Heights in Ward 7. A graduate of Ball State, she earned a Master’s from Syracuse.
“Charnice began working as a reporter for CCN in August of 2012. Her first assignments involved the nuts and bolts of community journalism. She reported on activities of Advisory Neighborhood Commissions and other public meetings. She soon branched out to profiles and reviewing museum exhibits.
“Charnice was a talented reporter with an engaging manner that endeared her to her sources. She was a valued member of the CCN news team completing several assignments a month. This organization will miss her contributions as will the communities of Wards 6, 7 and 8.”

ANC 6C Mourns The Loss of Charnice Milton
“ANC6C lost a good friend in the passing of Charnice Milton. Charnice had reported on ANC6C meetings for several years and covered several of our projects. We understand one of her last contributions is due to be published in the Hill Rag’s June edition regarding Councilmember Charles Allen’s meeting in May about the effort to make Maryland Avenue more safe.
“Charnice was a good reporter, obsessed with accuracy, and worked hard to improve our community — it was not unusual to receive emails from Charnice with a timestamp well after business hours. Charnice was always cheerful, and her smiling face in the first row during our ANC meetings will greatly missed. Our community is better for her efforts, and reduced by her passing. Thanks Charnice for your friendship and service.”

On The Death of Charnice Milton
BY YVETTE ALEXANDER
“I am saddened by the news of the untimely passing of Charnice A. Milton. This is a great loss to Ward 7 as Charnice was not only a resident, but was actively involved with her community through her work as a journalist.
“Charnice grew up in the Fairfax Village neighborhood and most recently lived in the Ft. Davis community. She attended Anne Beers Elementary and went on to accomplish many goals in her 27 years. Despite some challenges, Charnice received a full scholarship to attend Ball State University. She also received her Master’s from Syracuse University. She was an extraordinary young woman that had a passion for issues that affected not only Ward 7, but every community that lies East of the Anacostia River.
“Her work as a reporter for the East of the River Magazine was stellar as she kept readers informed and interested in learning more about what she covered. Regularly covering community meetings, she touched the lives of many as she become familiar with many ANC commissioners, civic association leaders and residents.
“My prayers are with her mother, Francis Milton and her entire family. Charnice will be greatly missed.”
