Reader Reports Sun. Afternoon Shooting in Shaw

View Larger Map

I received the following reader report around 3pm Sun. afternoon titled “Drive by at 8 and R St, NW”:

“Shooting at 8th and R St, NW. At least one person shot. Looked nonresponsive.

Heard 8-10 shots, and a car peeled out down west down R.”

Anyone else hear/see anything?


“There were two adult males shot. One in leg and one in arm. Lookout for black car fleeing area.”

UPDATE: More from MPD:

“On today’s date, at approximately 2:16 hrs, MPD units responded to the vicinity of the 800 block of R Street, N.W., for the sounds of gunshots. Upon their arrival, two males were found with non-life threatening gunshot injuries. A preliminary investigation indicates that the victims were not unknown to the perpetrator(s).”
