The units canvassed the area and located a crime scene in the 2200 block of 2nd street where 2 adult victims were both shot and transported to local hopitals. They are both in stable condition.

“4d units are on the scene of a fatal shooting of an adult male in the 1200 blk Crittenden Street, NW.”

UPDATE on Upshur St. Shooting from MPD:

“This morning at approximately 1020 we received a call for suspects attempting to break into a car in the 700 blk of Randolph. The officers arrived on the scene quickly and chased the suspects. One suspect was caught in the 4100 blk of 8th St. As the officer was attempting to place him under arrest, a struggled began and the suspect pulled a gun on the officer. The officer defended himself by firing at the suspect. After being shot by the officer, the suspect still managed to retrieve his weapon and run to the 800 blk of Upshur St where officers apprehended him. Unfortunately, the suspect did not survive the gunshot wound. We arrested 3 suspects and recovered 2 handguns in this case.
