Four men were shot Wednesday in three separate incidents in the District, D.C. police said.

In the first incident, two men were found shot about 7:40 p.m. in the hallway of an apartment building in the 2500 block of 14th Street NE, police said.

Officer Hugh Carew, a police spokesman, said the men were conscious and breathing when found. According to initial reports, the victims’ wounds did not appear to be life threatening.

It was not immediately clear what prompted the shooting.

About 11:20 p.m., a fourth man was found shot in the leg in the 4400 block of Sheriff Road. No further details about the shooting were available late Wednesday night.
