From MPD 3D Commander George Kucik:
“Over the weekend there were several instances in which subjects were shot at in the area of 8th and R and S Street, NW. I have already deployed extra officers there but we are also following up on specific leads to find out who the specific targets are and who is targeting them. I cannot get into all of the specifics but will say that these acts are the result two groups who are feuding and targeting each other. We are going to increase our deployment and use additional resources until to get to those involved in the feud.
Despite the police presence yesterday, a subject was shot and suffered minor injuries. Detectives are following up to determine who was responsible for that. We do have some leads to follow and in fact did arrest one subject at 8th and R Street on Sunday night for carrying a pistol.”
