View Larger Map

From MPD:

Yesterday afternoon First District officers were patrolling in the area of Eastern High School at dismissal as part of our continuing efforts to intervene in youth conflicts. Officers discovered a group of young men who reported that a subject shot at the then while they were standing at 17th Place and Constitution Avenue NE. One of these victims suffered a non life-threatening gunshot wound and was transported to an area hospital.

This morning the First District again had officer patrolling the area around Eastern High School, when they heard the sound of gunshots come from the area of 15th and C Streets NE. The officers were joined by other officers and then began making a grid-search of the area. A crime scene was located in the 300 block of 15th Street NE; however, no victim was found at that time. As members continued to search and process the crime scene, a victim presented himself at an area hospital reporting that he had been shot at the 15th Street location. This subject’s injuries are non life-threatening.

Through coordination between Patrol Officers, Detectives and School Resource Officers, the subject responsible for yesterday’s shooting has been identified and arrested. At this time, we believe that the two incidents are related; however, detectives continue to investigate for confirmation and to identify today’s assailant. Information developed at this time also indicated that these were not random victims in either incident.
