police car2(Updated at 5:05 p.m.) Police are on the lookout for three people that may have helped shoot and injure someone in Hill East around 2:46 p.m. today.

The shooting victim arrived at a local hospital and reported the crime there later in the afternoon, said D.C. Police spokesman Hugh Carew.

Though police said the victim of the shooting originally told them the crime occurred between the 500 and 700 blocks of 14th Street SE, authorities added in an email this afternoon that “further investigation has revealed that the location given by the victim may not be accurate.”

The full email reads:

1D Units received a call regarding a shooting that possibly occurred in the area of the Potomac Avenue Metro Station. Further investigation has revealed that the location given by the victim may not be accurate. [First District] Detectives are currently investigating the incidents that led up to the shooting in order to obtain consistency from the victim.

Anyone with additional information regarding this incident please contact First District Detectives or the Command Information Center on 202-727-9099.

The First District appreciates your concern and dedication regarding incidents that occur in the First District. We strive on getting the information out as soon as practical. At times the information may come to you a little delayed, only because we have to gather all the facts first. Thanks for your patience and team spirit!

Police are on the lookout for:

Three black men wearing all dark clothing, black mask [and] armed with a handgun.

  • Hill Resident

    Who could have guessed! Because what else could these thugs possibly have to do at 2:46 pm on a Monday? Heaven forbid they get jobs. A few B/Ms shoot someone in the middle of the day on a public street? Nothing to see here. Just another day on Hill East. Same criminal demographic as always. Cultural failure.
