While you might have heard first about the 11pm shooting on M Street in Georgetown, there were five other shootings in DC last night.  Two were shot in Petworth at Georgia and Decatur; another at 9th and Crittenden; a fourth was shot near the New York Avenue Metro, by 1st and M Street NE, and another was shot on the 4400 block of 7th St SE.

The Police are looking for information in all six shootings, if you have any information concerning any of the events, you can call them at 202.727.9099.

While at least four of these incidents did not result in a fatality, the uptick of assaults with a deadly weapon is certainly concerning.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.

  1. It’s always hard to tell if the coverage of crime like this shows crime is increasing or if crime is just getting more coverage, but this combined with my multiple direct dealings with DC crime (as a witness and victim, not as a suspect or…doer) has certainly made me very concerned lately.

    Was that NoMa shooting in front of the Harris Teeter?
