The shooting happened on the 1600 block of 7th Street NW about 12:15 a.m. Saturday.

The cyclist and a passenger in a car were arguing over the use of a lane near Dacha Beer Garden when the person in the vehicle pulled out a handgun, according to authorities. The individual with the gun then fired it at the cyclist, hitting the man’s rear bicycle tire.

The cyclist and the car went off in different directions soon after.

Police haven’t released any suspect information.

A thief also pistol-whipped and robbed a man after he passed out from a night of drinking in Shaw this past weekend, according to authorities.

The armed robbery occurred on the 900 block of P Street NW about 6 a.m. Sunday.

The victim woke up outside a building about a block east of Shaw’s Giant Food grocery store when two people came up to him in a car and asked if he was OK, police said.

The people then got out of their car, and one of them flashed a handgun.

The duo eventually fled with the victim’s wallet, watch, belt and some of his other belongings, hitting him in the mouth with the gun in the process.

Authorities haven’t released any suspect descriptions.
