A reader reports at 7:30pm:

“Some kid, probably 17 – 20 years old just got shot on the 1200 block of Crittenden Street NW. I just happened to be walking south down Georgia Ave from the bus stop when the police swarmed the block. I counted 7 cars, 2 bike cops, 1 police motorcycle, 2 white shirts, and fire/ems both on the scene. The police told the crowd all they heard was a guy got shot, but is going to live. They just put the kid on the stretcher and wheeled him into the ambulance. Looks like he got shot in the front of his neck. He was conscious and looking around. This has to stop.”

      Sadly true. If the latest publicized shooting in VA will prove: Republicans just blame Democrats for taking advantage of a tragedy to push an agenda for gun control.

      Um – That’s exactly what the Aussie’s did and it worked wonders for their gun violence….

    what does “no lookout” mean?

    • Anon

      It means the victim and any witnesses were unable or unwilling to identify the shooter.

      “No lookout” = no description of a suspect to look out for.
      When the police do have a description, it appears in the alert following the abbreviation “LOF” (“Look out for”).
