WJLA reports that the shooting took place at 4th and W Streets NW. The location is about a block from Howard University’s campus:
“The shooting happened around 4:30 p.m. Shortly afterward, police officers from the Third District arrived at the scene and observed a black male suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The victim was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.
D.C. resident Theresa Price heard the commotion, rushed out of her apartment and saw what appeared to be a male teenager wounded in a nearby alley. ‘All I heard was boom, boom, boom, boom,’ Price said.”
On Saturday it was the ice pick incident. And now a murder. This is ridiculous.
