Man Killed in Shooting in the 600 Block of Longfellow Street, NW

View Larger Map

“Dear PoP,

Have you heard about the shooting in this area of Brightwood last night? From what I’ve heard, a young man was shot in the head and killed right on the street. Have only seen one email from the MPD regarding this incident but a lot of residents are really upset. Complaints about this block and the gang/crew that hangs out on it have been many, but little has been done.”

I also only saw a few emails from MPD:

Nov. 29, 1:08am
“4d units are on the scene of a shooting in the 600 block of Longfellow Street, NW. An adult male was shot and transported to a local hospital. If anyone has information concerning this incident, please call 202-727-9099 or 1-888-919-CRIMe.”

Nov 29, 9:31 PM
“The detectives are still interviewing witnesses and the motive for the shooting is unclear at this time. The victim is in grave condition at a local hospital.”

Nov 29, 9:34 PM
“We have received confirmation that the victim of the shooting has succumbed as a result of his injuries.”
