A Violent (But Non-Fatal) Memorial Day Weekend

Our immediate area had two shootings and one stabbing over the long weekend. Thankfully, in all of them the victims survived.

The first incident was a stabbing Friday evening about 5 pm in the 1500 block of Benning Road NE. Then on Saturday night a juvenile was shot a little after 11 pm in the 1200 block of 18th Place NE.  On Sunday evening around 7:15 pm MPD reported another shooting in the 1700 block of Lyman Place NE, the second in Carver-Langston this weekend. All of this follows another non-fatal shooting Thursday in the 1700 block of Benning Road NE.

Lieutenant Franklin Porter of the Fifth District sent an email describing another incident that took place about 10:30 pm Thursday evening at 20th and Benning Road NE in which police responded to a call for two men fighting in the street. "Once on the scene the officers were able to observe the males struggling over control of a black 40 caliber Glock. After the males were safely disarmed and a investigation completed. One of the individuals were placed under arrest."

The best is yet to come, apparently.
