Double Shooting in Trinidad This Morning

Screen Shot 2013-05-01 at 9.14.32 AM

MPD sent out two text alerts indicating shootings a little before 8am this morning. I am assuming that they are related since the locations are one block apart, and the time frame is so small. [UPDATE: WUSA9 confirms that it was a single shooting of two male victims on Raum. One is in critical condition after suffering a gunshot to the chest. The other victim was shot in the leg. MPD says the shooter was a black male dressed in all black clothing with a black mask. No motive is known yet. Please keep the victims in your thoughts. I will update as more info becomes available.]

 Further updates after the jump.
