On the Hill East listserve one resident reports:
“Ironically, I had just come from the [safety meeting with Councilman Allen] meeting at Curbside Cupcakes and was sweeping the sidewalk less than 500 ft. from where this shooting took place. From what I gather someone was shot in the leg coming out of Gourmet Express. He got into a car and they sped off.”
Update from MPD:
“This morning at approximately 9:00am, MPD responded to the 1400 block of First St. SW, for the report of a shooting. Upon arrival, a male victim was found suffering from a gunshot wound to the body. He was transported to an area hospital for treatment. DCHA and detectives from the First District are actively investigating this offense.
Also this morning at approximately 10:20am, members responded to the 1300 block of Pennsylvania Avenue, SE for the report of a shooting. It was later learned the victim sustained a gunshot wound to the leg area and was being transported to the hospital by a private vehicle. Preliminary information indicates this offense may be the result of a traffic altercation between the victim and the suspect at the Sunoco Gas Station.
There is no correlation between these two events. However, the serious nature of both is of great concern and we have allocated additional resources to address the matter(s).
Anyone having information regarding either offense is asked to call MPD at (202) 727-9099 or Text Tip at 50411.”
