2 Shot Around 1:45am on the 2900 block of Sherman Ave, NW

Dear PoPville,

Last night around 1:40 AM my roommates heard several gunshots outside of our house on the corner of Columbia and Sherman in Columbia Heights. One of them called the police and 9 police cars, 1 ambulance, and a fire truck were there within a few minutes. They blocked off Sherman to cut off a bunch of people trying to flee the scene. Probably had trouble getting away because of all of the construction.

We haven’t had any shootings on our corner since about a year and a half ago and haven’t heard anything else yet.

Another reader writes that he hears it was a result of “a beef with another crew on Georgia Ave.”

@DCPoliceDept tweeted:

“3D Shooting-2900 Sherman Ave NW.1st Adult male shot in chest, 2nd adult male shot in arm, both conscious & breathing/ No lookout”

From MPD:

“At approximately 1:40 am, Third District units were called to the 2900 block of Sherman Avenue NW for sounds of gunshots. Officers found 2 adult males suffering from non-life threatening gunshot wounds. Anyone with information relating to this event is encouraged to call (202)727-9099.”
