(Updated at 4:26 p.m.; the incident happened close to the Shaw/Logan Circle border and the article was changed to reflect that.)

A man struck another man with a metal pipe and was then arrested near the border of Shaw and Logan Circle yesterday, say D.C. Police.

Justin Johnson, 29, is suspected of approaching a man and hitting him in the arm with a metal pipe on the 1000 block of P Street NW around 2:18 p.m. yesterday.

Johnson was arrested at the scene, say authorities. Police did not know if the victim was transported from the scene to a hospital.

A D.C. Fire and EMS representative was not immediately available for comment.

Information on the suspect’s lawyer wasn’t immediately available.

  1. How did police not know if the victim was transported to the hospital?

  2. Hi Gus. Police sometimes don’t know if a victim is transported to the hospital because that’s generally the job of D.C. Fire and EMS. As luck would have it, the Fire and EMS spokesperson was not available when I called earlier.

    I’ll add that to the story for transparency’s sake.

  3. Thanks for the reply!
