From MPD:

“District Man Sentenced to Seven Years in Prison
For Shooting Man in Back on Northwest Washington Street
Defendant Fired 11 Shots at Group of People on Springtime Afternoon

David Gore, 36, of Washington, D.C., was sentenced to seven years in prison for firing 11 gunshots at a group of people in Northwest Washington, hitting one victim in the back.

Gore pled guilty in September 2016, in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia, to assault with intent to kill and carrying a pistol without a license. He was sentenced by the Honorable José M. Lopez. After his prison term, he will be placed on three years of supervised release.

According to the government’s evidence, on May 16, 2016, at approximately 2:40 p.m., Gore exited a car in the 3700 block of New Hampshire Avenue NW and began shooting at a group of people standing nearby. After he finished firing on the group, Gore returned to the vehicle and left the scene. One man, who tried to run away, was shot in the back. He was treated at a hospital for his wounds. Remarkably, no one else was hit. According to the government’s evidence, Gore launched the attack without any provocation. Gore was arrested June 10, 2016.”
