The recreation center was closed at the time of the shooting. An adult male was struck once in the arm, once in the leg, and sustained a graze wound to the abdomen. The victim was conscious and breathing when he was transported to a local hospital for treatment of his non-life-threatening-injuries. The suspect was described as a black male, between 18-30 years old, with short frizzy hair, a scruffy beard, wearing a light colored tank-top, and gray sweatpants. He was last seen fleeing southbound on a black bicycle in the 1700 block of Lincoln Rd. NE.

“On 6/4/2019, at approximately 9:30 PM, members of the Fourth District were dispatched to a local hospital for the report of a walk-in shooting victim. While speaking to the victim, the officers learned that the complainant was walking in the 1100 block of 21st Street, NE, when he was approached by three suspects in a black sedan. One of the suspects then opened fire on the victim, who sustained several gunshot wounds to the body. The suspect vehicle then fled the scene in an unknown direction. The victim was then driven to the hospital by a good samaritan, and is currently in stable condition. This case is currently under investigation by members of the Fifth District Detective’s Office.
The lookout is for three male suspects in a small black sedan.
Anyone with information regarding this event is encouraged to call 202-727-9099, or send an anonymous text to 50411.”
