The shooting happened on the 200 block of New York Ave. NW before 4:30 p.m. today, police said.
The victim of the shooting was conscious when officers arrived on the scene, authorities told us.
Rachelle Nigro, a commissioner with Shaw’s ANC 6E, shared news of the shooting in a Facebook post earlier this evening.
“There is one shooting victim in the hospital and two shooters,” Nigro wrote. “It apparently happened on the sidewalk of the 200 block of NY Ave. 32 casings were found.”
We’ll update this story if we learn more.
I’ve lived in Washington for almost 16 years. When I arrived the city literally had a dead feel to it… frozen in time. Now, the construction of new residential, commercial and retail projects is overwhelming. When the boom began almost 10 years ago, it was fairly easy to keep track of what was happening. Not anymore.
One example is Mount Vernon Triangle, the area bounded by 7th Street, Massachusetts, New York and New Jersey Avenues. It’s practically a mini-neighborhood (“mini-hood”) going up east/southeast of the Convention Center.
Just ran into “The Triangle,” a new blog for the mini-hood… interesting to see what’s happening at MVT. Great map shows what projects are completed or planned — click on the buttons at top of map to see what is retail and what is residential.
