“At approximately 1:50 a.m., units from the Third District received multiple calls for the sounds of gunshots in the 1200 block of 7th Street, NW. Units immediately responded to the location and observed one male fleeing the location on foot. After a brief foot pursuit the units were able to make an apprehension. The units were also able to recover two handguns. Shortly after the subject was stopped, members of the Third District received a call from Metro Transit Police in reference to a male victim suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg. The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment.
Anyone with additional information is asked to call the Metropolitan Police Department on (202) 727-9099.”
