From MPD:

“At approximately 0327 hours, MPD officers responded to the unit block of Scott Circle, NW for a report of a stabbing. Upon arrival, officers located an adult male suffering from multiple stab wounds inside an apartment. The victim was transported to a local hospital by DCFEMS in critical condition. The relationship between the victim and suspects is unknown. Detectives are on the scene attempting to gather more information at this time. The suspects were last seen leaving the building in an unknown direction. If anyone has any information regarding this incident, please call 202-727-9099.”

    Odds are that it was a sex romp gone bad.

      You don’t have much of a sample pool for that speculation (though yes, last time someone was critically stabbed here it was the result of a botched robbery attempt after the premise of sex). It could have also been the result of:
      – burglary attempt gone wrong
      – heated argument among acquaintances
      – heated argument among unrelated parties
      – sleep-walking accident
      – self-inflicted knifing (accidental)
      – self-inflicted knifing (intentional)
      – alien abduction gone wrong

        Aliens don’t stab. They vaporize.

          Only after they probe; they always probe.

            Thank you Anon for making me giggle at my desk.

        Odds are that it was a clown incident.

        • That’s a clown supposition, bro

        I was returning home when the Police were arriving I live 5 blocks away. There were around 15 Police cars and officers rushed the building in a tactical manor. There was also a Fire Truck from U street Engine 9 blocking 16th St. This incident was likely an attack.

        You left out two of the most obvious things that pop to mind – a drug deal gone bad (which is more specific than acquaintance disagreement) and domestic partner or people dating dispute (while they may or may not be related by marriage, they are likely more than mere acquaintances in such instances.)

          My thought. Sour drug parley.

    “unit block of Scott Circle”

    Does this mean it was The General Scott (1 Scott Circle)? Anyone have confirmation on which building this happened in?

    • Monique Cooper

      It was the General Scott Condominium. I live there.

      • CHSC

        Thanks so much. So do I. Guess I slept through any commotion last night.

        • Michelle

          I also live there and must have slept through the commotion as well. Saw the police cars and “crime scene sciences division” van as I left for work this morning. Scary.

          • CHSC

            I used the side exit this morning and didn’t see anything. Didn’t know anything had happened until this article…

      The building to the right on 16th st if you are heading North right next to the underpass. Be advised I have seen an increased in suspicious individuals at early morning hours around the area recently as far north as R and 17th and as far south as K and 16th. If you see something say something call 911.
