17th and Kalorama Rd, NW

From MPD around 830pm last night:

At approximately 2015 hours, Third District units responded to the 1700 block of Euclid Street, NW, for the sound of gunshots. Third District Officers are on the scene and currently investigating this matter. No victims have been located at this time.

and 10pm:

Complainants were not injured. We are still securing the scene and collecting evidence.

Lookout for the suspect in reference to this shooting is a juvenile hispanic male, 5’9, and medium build.

Any additional information please call 911 or the Command Information Center 202-727-9099.

Update from CM Jim Graham:

Early last evening, about 7 PM, a chance encounter between three Latino males resulted in shots being fired at 17th and Euclid. No one was injured. The shooter appears to be a member of the 17 crew. The good news is that there are video records (from the MPD camera on that corner, and another camera) of the crime. There are also cooperating witnesses. Hopefully that will result in the arrest of the shooter.

We have made solid progress fighting crime in this block, and we will not be deterred in those successful efforts by this setback . Chief Lanier has once again committed major police resources to this area.
