Units responded to the location and discovered an adult male victim suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. The victim was transported to a local area hospital for treatment. A lookout was provided for a black male, light complexioned, 5’7” tall, between 20-30 years old, wearing a red/black jacket.”

“Several hours later, MPD’s Shotspotter gunshot detection system alerted Fourth District units to multiple gunshots in the 1200 block of Shepherd Street, NW. Officers responded to the location and canvassed the area, but did not locate a victim. Shortly thereafter, an adult male victim arrived at a local area hospital suffering from an apparent gunshot wound and was treated for his injury. There was no lookout provided for the suspect in this case.

Fourth District detectives are actively investigating both incidents. At this time, it is unknown whether these two incidents are related. Anyone with information regarding these cases is asked to call (202) 727-9099 or text 50411.”
