“We are investigating a shooting that occurred in the 900 block of H Street NE. It was an assault with intent to rob. Sneakers were involved. No injuries.”
More info when it becomes available.
More from MPD:
We have a general description of three black male suspects. Customers were waiting in front of Downtown Locker Room for it to open so they could purchase a new type of sneaker. The suspects approached the customers who were waiting in line and attempted to rob them. The robbery escalated and one suspect fired several shots. Nobody was struck. The suspects then fled. We have a general description of a white Dodge Charge style vehicle with tinted windows that fled north on 9th Street.
Our theory is that the suspects assumed those waiting had a decent amount of cash on them in order to purchase the new shoes.
