@dcfireems tweets at 10am:

“MPD reports that 1300 block of Conn. Ave., NW will be closed, DuPont Circle to N St., NW until further notice. Crime scene investigation.”

UPDATE from MPD:

“The following information is provided by the Metropolitan Police Department’s Public Information Office:

Around 2:30 AM there was a fight that began inside of the Heritage Club in the 1300 block of Conn. Ave, NW. Several patrons were involved in the fight which then spilled out onto the sidewalk. After the fight moved outside, three adult males were shot, one of which later died of his wounds. During the incident, a total of three people were stabbed and three others shot. One of the stabbing victims was found inside the establishment. All of the victims were adult males and all are currently receiving medical treatment. All of the victims involved reside in Maryland. Since it is still very early in the investigation this information is preliminary and may change as the investigation continues.”
