Man Opens Fire @ Club in 2400 Blk of Benning

Screen Shot 2013-01-26 at 8.24.06 AM
From MPD:

This morning at about 2:30 am, five people were shot inside a club in the 2400 block of Benning Road, NE.

A woman and four men received non-life threatening injuries when a man inside the bar shot at patrons.

We do not have any suspect, nor have we discovered a motive for this shooting.

When more information becomes available we will pass it to the community and we ask that if anyone has any information that may be helpful you please call 727-9099. Andy Solberg Commander, 5D

I'm assuming this happened at DC Sound Stage (2403 Benning Road), but that's mostly because I'm not aware of any other clubs/bars/lounges opening in the block. Please correct me if you hear otherwise.

Capitol Community News says several Twitter sources are saying it was indeed at DC Sound Stage.

I imagine most people know by now that circumventing such laws is simply a matter of getting in a car and driving to some lawless shithole and loading up as many firearms as one likes. (At least, most people who aren't fucking imbiciles understand this.)

That's why stronger national gun control measures are needed.

Sounds like a gang initiation thing. (No murder charge, even if you're ever actually caught!)

If you want to shoot someone dead, and you have a gun, it's really not that hard.

Anon 11:29am -- of course, you know why that's a really stupid thing to ask; but that wasn't going to stop you from being stupid, was it?

did he use an assault rifle, or one of those semi-auto pistols that are now recognized as constitutionally protected? "National gun control measures" aren't going to trump that, no matter how self righteous you get. Argue for D.C. voting rights to complete the ineffectual internet ranting. Go you!!

Let us know what kind of effective political organizing you're doing, since you're in such a great position to rate what's ineffectual.

you first, since you seem to think such things work. Or, instead, do you just sit around and talk about what Occupy could have been, with a small tear running down your right cheek?

Probably not a gang initiation, but a neighborhood beef.

"Yargle bargle!" cried the anonymous internet troll, as he argued heatedly with no one.
