A woman was shot in Hill East over the weekend, police said.

The shooting happened on the 100 block of 17th Street SE about 2:15 a.m. Sunday. The area is about two blocks west of the Stadium-Armory Metro station.

The victim had multiple gunshot wounds, but survived, according to authorities.

Police haven’t released any suspect information.

After the shooting, commissioner Denise Krepp of Advisory Neighborhood Commission 6B tweeted photos of damage that appeared to come from bullets.

A community meeting is scheduled for this week to discuss the crime.

    Same house as the last shooting in this area. And the site of multiple shootings previously. C’mon Denise and Charles, let’s do something here. The police could set up surveillance here for less than two weeks and have enough evidence for conspiracy to distribute. WHY HAVEN’T THEY DONE SO?? HOW LONG WILL THE TENANTS OF THIS HOUSE BE ALLOWED TO TERRORIZE THE NEIGHBORHOOD?

      MPD seems unable or unwilling to do anything about crime in this area.

      Police WON’T do anything unless you call them. They drive past the hookers outside my house all the time and don’t do a thing.

    If you live in this area you’ve seen all of the guys hanging around that house. And you very likely have heard the ridiculous parties with blaring music that the cops let them get away with.
