This happened last night less than one block from my house. My friend was knocking on my door when we heard three gunshots. Cops responded quickly (about 10-15 units in 2-5 minutes). A short while later we left my home, and saw the crime scene. There was one body on the ground near the intersection of Sherman and Columbia, and two large groups of bystanders.
Terrible scene. My heart goes out to the family of the young woman who was killed.”
Council Member Jim Graham writes:
MPD tells me that about 7 PM someone walked up to a house on the 3000 block of Sherman and shot three people, two adult males and a juvenile female. MPD states that the juvenile died from the shooting. The two males—conscious and breathing–are in the hospital, wounded.
Gang/crew connections under investigation.
Our thoughts and prayers go to all those who are impacted by this tragedy.
Hopefully the two adult males will come clean on what they know about the shooter. Hopefully.
On Saturday, February 19, 2011, at approximately 7 p.m., units from the Third District were dispatched to Sherman Avenue and Columbia Road NW, to investigate the sounds of gunshots.
