Just before 1125 pm [Sunday]. units received a call for a shooting victim in the 5300 block of Chillum Place NE. An adult male was located suffering from an apparent gunshot wound and has been transported to an area hospital for treatment where he has what appears to be non life threatening injuries. The victim is reporting being shot in the area along South Dakota Avenue Northeast, but that has not been confirmed.
UPDATE – The complainant in this shooting was robbed of his property by the suspects who shot him. Shortly thereafter, another armed robbery took place in the 5400 block of North Capitol St. by subjects fitting the description of the first incident. The victim was able to get the tag number of the vehicle. A third robbery then took place in the Fifth District; the description matched the prior two robberies.
In short order, the Fifth District spotted the suspect’s vehicle and pursued it to the Fourth District near 8th & Upshur, NE. The suspects were apprehended and a weapon recovered. Great job & teamwork between officers of both Districts!
