Shooting in 900 Block of H Street

I'm getting conflicting reports of a shooting on H Street NE. I suspect that what may have happened is that there was a shooting near 8th & H and the victim (or another involved party) progressed to around 11th or 12th and H and headed east. I understand that portions of H Street have been blocked off.

[UPDATE: I'm told the shooting actually occurred in the 900 block of H Street, possibly in the H Street Connection parking lot near the 7-11]

I don't understand. Guns are illegal in DC.

Anyone know the story?
Drugs, Money, OPP?

Anyone want to take odds
they came out of XII?

Who's the victim?

I take it that wasn't a homicide we haven't heard much.

There's a certain element that hangs out around 8th and H because of the bus stops.

Looks like two guys were shot. At least one intentionally.

The police are being awfully quiet about the details of this shooting. Maybe they are afraid that someone will ask how someone can shoot 10 times at 8pm on busy street, in DC, and still get away. Isn't H Street suppose to have a special detail? Anyone impressed with the First District commander?

I can see someone shooting and getting away fast.
If you have a semi, it's 5 seconds to empty the clip and if someone is driving, you are moving and shooting.

Now that said, are there street cameras?
Would there be some reasonable ideas what car they are looking for?
