WASHINGTON - DC Fire officials say one person is dead, five people are in critical condition, and two people are in serious condition. Fire officials say all of the victims are in their 20s and 30s except one person who is a teen.
The shooting happened around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in the 4000 block South Capitol St.
Police say an MPD cruiser crashed during the pursuit that followed. It happened in the 5600 block of Saint Barnabas Road.
Prince George's County Fire officials say the officers will be transported to a DC Hospital.
No word yet if suspects have been captured.
Police and medevac helicopters have also responded.
South Capitol Street is closed.
Wait. I thought they had a gun ban in the city.
DC ought to pass a law against guns. Then this stuff would stop.
Christian militia, I bet
Hope! Change! Progress!
At least nine people were shot in an apparent drive-by in southeast Washington Tuesday evening, and four D.C. police officers were injured pursuing possible suspects.
One person died at the scene in the 4000 block of South Capitol Street and at least eight others have been taken to area hospitals. Some are in critical condition.
D.C. police responded to the shooting report at about 7:30 p.m.. An AK47-type weapon reportedly was thrown from a green sedan that police chased through parts of D.C. and across the Prince George's County line.
Four officers in pursuit of the vehicle were injured in a crash in the 5600 block of St. Barnabas Road in Temple Hills, Md.
Nay ... Amish militia.
wait, dc? definitely thugs... that’s all i’m going to say.
so, nothing to see here.. pretty much a daily occurrence.
According to Google street view, not a pretty neighborhood. Pretty much what I was expecting.
Come to Cincinnati (Detroit South) for real gangbanger action!
CINCINNATI — In what can only be described as a bloody month of March, there are yet more victims of gun violence.
Eight people have died in as many days...
This doesn’t make much sense. Was the pursuit after the shooting or the shooting after the pursuit! We’re they people on the street? crazy article!
LOL... Idiots, abusing and tossing a perfectly good AK47. There ought ta be a law, I tell ya!
Once we finish cleaning out the political dens of vipers, we're going to have to do something about them as well...
Damned if I know! I was not in on the action!
Reportedly gang-related. Damned Democrats are at it again.
A conservative would never throw away a good firearm.
I think the description of the shooters ran like this:
8 Amish midgets wearing tinfoil hats and shouting “PeeWee Herman Lives”. Seen driving away in a Pinto.
That’s all we need here - imported Amish gangbangers.
I know the area. I used to have Greater Southeast Hospital as an account and never did any work after regular business hours.
DC is trying to revitalize this area; it is close to the Nationals Ballpark and Marine Baracks.
Slow night in the White House...
