Sources close to the family tell WUSA 9 reporter Bruce Johnson that former DC Mayor Marion Barry has passed away.
Family and very close associates are gathering at this hour at United Medical Center in Southeast, DC as word spreads.
The 78-year-old Barry was just released from Howard University Hospital this evening where he had been admitted on Thursday.
Tweets about the situation by Johnson and others were confusing the situation because of earlier reports on his release and the newer ones that he was dead. WUSA posted this story at 2 a.m. EST.
