“The Third District is currently investigating a shooting in the 1400 block of Columbia Road NW. An adult male has been transported to an area hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
Anyone with information is asked to call 202-727-9099.”
“I wasn’t entirely certain it was a shooting until I saw the faces walking past me looking concernedly over their shoulders. saw a child with his father, about 5 or 6, sobbing while walking away – he must’ve seen it – it was particularly disturbing, this was about 6:30pm – crime scene tape was there about an hour later, folks collecting casings I imagine.”
“1 victim, bleeding badly from apparent leg wound, taken in ambulance”
