An adult male was shot this afternoon near Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE and Malcolm X Avenue SE. Police say the victim is conscious and alert. D.C. EMTs are transporting him, in serious condition, to a trauma center. Peaceaholics founder Ron Moten tells City Paper the victim is a 34-year-old man, and the shooting came after an argument. (A nearby Peaceaholics office called him to update him.)
