Three-year-old girl wounded in triple shooting

A three-year-old girl was among three people shot and wounded Monday night on a Southeast D.C. street corner, according to a D.C. police spokesman.

The shooting occurred about 8:15 p.m. in the 1500 block of 19th St. SE, just south of the Anacostia Freeway near Pennsylvania Ave. Police said two men wearing hooded shirts, at least one armed with a handgun, opened fire on people standing on a corner.

Police said the three-year-old was wounded in the foot, and two men, ages 26 and 27, were each shot once in a leg. Police said none of the injuries appear to be life-threatening.

Detectives know of no motive or suspects, police said.
