U Street Sunoco, photo via Street View(Updated at 5:28 p.m.) A shooting occurred near the 14th Street corridor early this morning, according to D.C. Police.

The crime happened at the Sunoco gas station at 1400 block of U St. NW around 5:16 a.m. today, authorities said.

Though police originally tweeted the crime occurred on the 1400 block of V St. NW, a police report we obtained today shows that not to be the case.

According to that report, a man and two other people were walking near the gas station when an unknown suspect began shooting at them from the parking lot. One of the men was injured by the gunfire and taken to the hospital for treatment, authorities said.

This area has in the past been plagued by violent crime. A man was shot and killed just one block away at 14th and V streets NW last September.
