Stabbing in Columbia Heights around 5:30pm

A few readers report via twitter and email:

“There was a stabbing in Columbia heights near the Wells Fargo on 14th at about 530 tonight. My husband saw 3 young males, roughly ages 16-20, dashing across the street right in front of a fire engine on his way home. 10 minutes later on his way to giant for me he saw the same kids jump into a vehicle and speed off. He gave a statement to police, who told him the victim was in the hospital, condition unknown. Just a reminder to everyone to be careful and pay attention to your surroundings!”
