From MPD:

“The Fifth District is working a shooting that occurred at approximately 3am at 1st and P Street NW. Units responded to the sounds of gunshots and while canvassing discovered a male victim suffering from a gunshot wound. The victim described the suspect as a black male 6-1 in height, wearing a brown jacket. The preliminary motive in this case appears to be robbery. The victim is in stable condition at an area hospital. If anyone has any additional information please contact MPD immediately. 202 727 9099”

      MPD doesn’t release the names of assault/shooting victims because they’re also witnesses to a crime and as such could be retaliated against for getting the police involved.

    I was actually inside the carryout placing an order when the victim came inside to call 911. When he first walked in first thing he said was “I was shot!”, and started to remove his jacket and turn in circles asking us to look for the gunshot wound. At that moment we did not see any visible wound or traces of blood on his body. Everyone inside the carryout did not take him serious because of his clear state of inebriation. It was clear to us that he may have been robbed but never thought he had actually been shot. I feel horrible for not taking him serious at the time and not helping him directing the police to the correct location. I said to him when he was on the phone with 911 and complaining about the pain, to calm down and that he had not been shot. I hope his injuries are not serious and get well soon. As for the person that did this… I hope they find you and put you in jail for a long time and keep you from doing this again.

    I live with the victim and thankfully he is doing better. Please if anyone has any information report it to MPD.

    I was on my way home when I saw the Chinese carry out place blocked off and the victim carried out on a stretcher. Most police presence than I have ever seen in this area.

    Don’t walk around piss ass drunk at night. I’m sorry, this is not a safe neighborhood to walk around be ignorant in. Head up, ear buds out and know your surroundings.

    I’m f*&(ing sick of reading crime stats showing my neighbors getting jumped and beaten for an iPod/iPhone/iWallet. Until we get more non-dealer/drunk/crackhead eyes on North Cap, everyone needs to be alert.

    The punk shot him in the back?? Wonder if these gun toting robbers are kids with long history of offenses still running around the streets?
