    I find all of these shootings very sad of course and my condolences to the families. But has anyone else noticed a lot of the recent shooting victims have been from South East, just seems strange to me?

    • And by “recently” you mean post-1975?

        Yeah, I get what you’re saying, but I mean the three people that died over the weekend then last night, i thought it was sort of strange because none of the shootings were in SE. I may be trying to hard to make a pattern though.

    Like 99% of dc murders this was probably not random. I walk these areas all the time, day or night, and never have an issue.
