The Washington Post isreporting that a triple shooting occurred at around 7:40 p.m. tonight near Howard University.
“While they investigate, police have closed 8th Street NW between and V Street and Barry Place, near a Howard dormitory and the 9:30 club. Southbound lanes of Georgia Avenue are closed at Barry Place,” says the Post.” The ages, genders and condition of the three injured people were not immediately known.”
A police source tells City Desk none of the three victims are Howard University students and that one of them is in serious condition while the other two are in stable condition. The source also says cops have not been able to interview the victims and so don’t yet know what motivated the shootings.
