(Updated at 12:33 p.m.) A man was shot in the head along a busy part of 18th Street NW early this morning, say D.C. Police.

Third District Commander Jacob Kishter said by e-mail today the victim of the shooting was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Kishter added this afternoon that the shooting occurred in front of the Amsterdam Falafelshop (2425 18th St. NW) at approximately 2:47 a.m. this morning.

Madam’s Organ owner Bill Duggan said his son heard a single gunshot while bartending on the roof of his business at 2461 18th St. NW.

“We complained earlier to the police that they were all just standing in the street and not patrolling the sidewalk or the area in general,” Duggan added.

Several people took to Twitter this morning to discuss the shooting.
