Pellet removed from victims back
On Sunday, June 17th, around 11:30 p.m. my roommate was shot with a pellet gun. The pellet pierced and lodged into his back. He’s fine and the wound is healing. This incident occurred while he was walking north bound on Sherman Avenue NW between Girard and Harvard Streets on the west side (the same side as the gas station). After notifying the Third District Police Department, it appears another shooting with a pellet gun may have occurred in the same vicinity around 12:30 a.m.
We called 911 after the incident with my roommate. The operator asked if an EMT was needed. We said no; however, the operator said officers would be sent to the area. We watched for a patrol car from several blocks away but never saw one after waiting 15 minutes or so.
Ed. Note: In July 2011 we learned of a cyclist hit by a bb gun on the 2300 block of 11th St, NW.
