“The Metropolitan Police Department is investigating a shooting death this morning where the victim was found in the 2900 block of Sherman Avenue, Northwest.
Anyone with information is encouraged to contact us on 202-727-9099 or text to 50411.”
From CM Jim Graham:
“I have very sad news. A Latino juvenile was pronounced dead from gunshot last might at Washington Hospital Center. He was taken in a private vehicle to hospital from the vicinity of Columbia Road and Sherman Avenue.
We have confirmed that very recently was committed as a ward to the Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services. He had a pass to visit that area.
According to MPD, there was no recorded shot spotter reports or complaints of gunshots in this area.
Much more needs to be known about this. I am advised that the car and driver are known to MPD.
For now, our most sincere sympathy goes to his family and friends.”
