From Alert DC:

“Alert: Shooting at 1147 hrs in the 4700 block of Kansas Avenue, NW. Lookout for suspects is (1) B/M light complexion all black clothing wearing a mask, (1) B/M dark complexion all black clothing wearing a mask.”

Readers report:

“I heard about about six shots fired near Sherman circle about 20 minutes ago. Actually took cover. Emergency services on the scene.”

and

“Just got back to our house on the 4800 block of Illinois from a walk in Petworth and heard around 7 shots. Looked out window and saw two guys run west on Decatur and then turn into the alley. Looks like they shot at the house on the 4700 block of Illinois and one person inside was hit. A guy was shoveling out his car immediately adjacent to the shooters and seemed to have dove into the snow.

Nothing to ruin a beautiful post-blizzard day like a Petworth shooting.”

and

“there was a shooting at 4700 block of Illinois on Sherman Circle at about 11:45/noon. One wounded, apparently will be ok. Police on lookout for shooter.

What a freaking way to ruin a snow day, quite the shock while out shoveling to hear and see a shooting.”
