From MPD around 9pm Sunday night:

“The Third District is currently working a shooting in the 700 block of Gresham Place NW. We have located 2 victims with non-life threatening gunshot wounds and believe a third victim that went to an area hospital on their own may be related to this incident. This third individual also has non-life threatening injuries.

Motorists and pedestrians in the area should expect closures due to the ongoing investigation.

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

    Wasn’t this the block of the shooting at the caribbean festival?

    does anyone have more information on this? Did anyone hear it?

    • Mike

      Heard it. Eight shots were fired at 8:34PM. One person shot in the foot, another in the hand. That’s all I know.

        Was it the east or west part of the block?

          The police blocked off Gresham from midway towards Georgia. Police showed up really fast and there were a lot of them, including a police dog.

      Saw the response unfold from a roof near U. The police car response and chopper with a spotlight up in the air were both very quick, but it looks like they didn’t find the guy as the choppers spent a ton of time circling and eventually started looking several blocks south to seemingly no avail. At least one of the victims was transported to Howard hospital.

      Yes, I heard it. About six or seven shots in rapid sequence. Then police and helicopter came. I don’t believe he was apprehended.

    I’m pretty sure there’s an MPD camera at Sherman and Harvard and the businesses at the Georgia Ave end of the block have cameras too. I bet we see videos of suspects soon…

      Oh great. Grainy photos that literally look like every man 13-49 in my neighborhood…

        That sometimes lead to arrest and conviction of murderers. Yeah, those.

        • Anon NS

          Well, there was no murder here. Regardless, I bet you $100 nothing happens to anyone involved here. Welcome to DC.
