Four stabbed near homeless shelter, Georgetown law school

Four people were stabbed and wounded Monday morning near a homeless shelter and the Georgetown University law school in Northwest D.C., authorities said.

The incident occurred just before 9:30 a.m. in the 400 block of 2nd Street Northwest, somewhere outside the Community for Creative Non-violence homeless shelter and the law school, authorities said. Officer Tisha Gant, a D.C. police spokeswoman, said four people — three males and a female — were taken to the hospital with stab wounds, but their injuries were not thought to be life threatening.

Gant said she did not know what precipitated the incident, and she did not have any information on suspects. Kenneth Diggs, a spokesman for D.C.’s Department of General Services, said it was unclear if the victims were from the shelter.
