A reader asks in the comments. From the CH Listserv:
“Unfortunately I must inform you all that there was another fatal shooting in the area. A young man was gunned down on the 2800 block of 11th St at approximately 8:15. Third District responded quickly. I spoke with a family member and gave my condolences to the grieving family.”
“The decadent was 40 year old AA Male. In addition to 3D, Chief Lanier is on site along with Commander Kucik and CM Jim Graham. MPD is investigating. The incident occurred on 11th between Harvard and Girard. If anyone has information please contact our tip line on 202 727 9099 or text on #50411″
and from Council member Jim Graham:
“A short time ago, I came home from the scene of a murder, at 11th and Harvard, where there lay on the cold street the body of man…shot repeatedly. Police said it had all tab telltale marks of a targeted shooting. 5-10 shots. Just after 8 PM.
Details are still very sketchy. Some told me that the victim (said to be 39 years old), and his family might have lived right on on 11th.
Anyway, my thought on this latest example of violence. And my thoughts are with the family and his loved ones in this time of great tragedy for their family.”
