Update from MPD:

“Earlier this afternoon, members of the Third District responded to the area of 7th and O Streets NW in reference to the sounds of gunshots. Arriving units observed a vehicle fleeing the area. The vehicle fled toward the area of NJ and O Street NW, where the occupants exited the vehicle and fled on foot. No victims were located, but there were some vehicles struck by the gunfire. As a result of the investigation, we recovered three handguns and arrested an adult male in this incident. The investigation is continuing to identify any others involved.

In addition, we are working to determine if this incident has any relation to the shooting earlier today at 8th and R Streets NW.

Anyone with information on either of these incidents is asked to call 202-727-9099.”

From MPD:

“Units from the Third District are currently in the area of the 800 block of S street NW in reference to the sounds of gunshots. No evidence has been recovered there. However, a few minutes after that call, a male victim arrived at an area hospital with what appears to be a gunshot wound to the stomach. Detectives and officers are trying to determine if these are related incidents at this time.

Anyone with information is asked to call 202-727-9099.”

    Definite shooting. Sounded like 3-5 shots.

    i heard at least 15+ in two separate back to back bursts, but i thought the reports were coming from mt. vernon area

  • BlagdenAlleyConvention

    Heard what sounded about 10 distant fairly rapid gunshots at that time (heard from from 10/N ST NW).

    If the shooting was at 8th and S why are they locking down 3rd and O? That’s like a half mile away.

      See that car on the sidewalk in the last photo? That’s not usually parked there.

  • 7th between N and O was completely blocked off also.

    • Shawnnn

      Yeah, there’s a photo of that in the article.

    Color me shocked that there was another shooting on the 700 block of O. Whenever the weather’s decent, there are tons of people drinking along the fence at the Kennedy Rec Center. There’s a reason the police put up a tent there a couple Summers ago.
