Three Women, Two Men Shot in the 2200 block of Adams Place, NE “just outside the Stadium Club” and near Echostage

From MPD:

“The Fifth District is investigating a shooting that occurred in the 2200 block of Adams Place, NE.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call (202) 727-9099.”

Earlier they tweeted just after 3am:

“5D Shooting/2200 block of adams place NE/ three females and two males/ all conscious and breathing

Update from MPD: “The offense is related to the night club(s) on Queens Chapel Road, NE.”

Update from Washington Post:

“Police said the shooting occurred about 2:55 a.m. in the 2200 block of Adams Place NE, just outside the Stadium Club, a steakhouse and gentleman’s club popular with professional athletes and hip-hop artists.”

    It’s near a lot of things but echostage is a far less relevant boogieman than Stadium, unless this is linked to either venue you should really not include them in the title of the post.

      It’s also very close to the railroad tracks, so it could have been hobo-related.

        sometimes it can be hard to tell the different between a singing hobo and a stabbing hobo.

    Speaking of annoying nightclubs, anyone know when Ibiza will finally just die? I know they went into bankruptcy protection last year, but it’s been crickets since then. Every Friday and Saturday at 315am, like clockwork people come screaming down the neighborhood streets to their cars.

      they wont be around forever, plus i know the owners are getting started on another venture
      esp with everyone moving in around there

      do remember though… you moved in on ibizas back yard. not vice versa
      ibiza was there before you knew the neighborhood existed(& had a fancy title on it) most likely lol

        There’s a sign with a rendering of the planned development coming in to that lot that says 2015 delivery. Seems like that’s rather ambitious given that there’s no work being done right now, but who knows.

    Echostage was not open last night. This headline is misleading and insinuates that the people shot came from that venue. Whichever nightclub the MPD tweet was referring to was one of the other clubs in the area. There is more than one.

      Really irresponsible to include Echostage in the title. Wasn’t open or related in any way. Early rumors were it was connected to Stadium but I don’t think it has been released yet.

      • Echostage is in the title for a reference point. Many are not familiar with 2200 block of adams place NE. Many are now familiar with Echostage. It’s a reference point. It’s like saying “beating near Eastern Market Metro” or “shooting near 9:30 club” – just a reference points. But your objections are noted. Thank you.
