Six people were shot in Washington, D.C., over an 8-hour period stretching from Sunday night to early Monday, including one man killed in Northeast and three people injured in two separate robbery attempts in the Brightwood neighborhood in Northwest.
The fatal shooting occurred in the 500 block of 58th Street Northeast at 9 p.m. Sunday. Metropolitan Police Department officers responded for a report of a shooting and found two men suffering from gunshot wounds.
The man who died has not been identified by police. The other man was taken to a hospital and MPD spokesman Officer Paul Metcalf said Monday it appeared that man would face charges.
No further details were available.
The first of the Brightwood shootings occurred at 8 p.m. Sunday in the 5600 block of Georgia Avenue Northwest. A man was shot in the foot after he tried to fight off a robber, according to Capt. Brian Bray, who wrote an account of this incident and two others on MPD’s online Listserv.
The man told police he was walking through an alleyway when another man approached him and told him to give up his phone. The victim attempted to punch the robber, who pulled out a handgun and shot him.
The man was taken to a hospital for treatment, and the robber fled. More
