WUSA9 reports that three teenagers have apparently been shot in different locations near Congress Heights Elementary School in Ward 8.
According to MPD, “one shooting occurred in the 500 block of Alabama SE. The second shooting happened in the 3300 block of 4th St SE. The third happened in the 800 block of Wheeler Hill SE.” Only one victim has life-threatening injuries.
