From MPD:

Shortly before 2pm this afternoon two suspect’s approached an individual at the bus stop located at 5th and H Street, NE. One of those suspects voiced his intention to effect a robbery on the individual standing at the bus stop. Upon hearing this and believing the suspect to be armed, this individual brandished his lawfully possessed firearm and shot at the suspect striking him in his arm. This person has a valid concealed carry pistol license in the District of Columbia.

At this point we believe we have the involved parties in custody, however as stated below if you have information related to this incident please contact us immediately.

There were businesses in the area that have been damaged by the gunfire. We have not identified any other injured persons related to this event. Again, we are investigating and processing this scene. I will update when traffic is restored to its normal flow.”
