A Stabbing & Two Shootings Yesterday Afternoon
There was a stabbing around 2:34pm yesterday in the 900 block of Mt. Olivet Road NE (north of Gallaudet University on the southern border of Ivy City). According to an email sent by a police representative "[t]he victim was stabbed several times in the stomach," and later received treatment at a local hospital. The text alert sent out contained a lookout for a black male "5'5 to 5'7, med complexion, gray hooded sweater, gray hat, blue jean, black and red shoe" and a knife. Event #I20180159400.
An hour later (3:31pm) police located an individual who who was injured in a shooting that took place near 17th & Benning Road NE (on the border of Rosedale and Carver-Langston). The victim, who sustained "a single gunshot wound to his torso," made his way to 17th & East Capitol SE where police encountered him. The original alert that went out listed the location as the unit block of 17th Street NE. I don't have any further information on the status of the victim. Event #I20180159533.
I also received an email, but not an alert, regarding a shooting that occurred about 3:50pm in the rear of 1701 Benning Road NE. The victim in that case "was shot once in the buttock" and later treated at an area hospital. This is very close to the shooting mentioned above.
