One man was shot and another was stabbed in Southeast D.C. Monday night, police said.

A man was shot in the lower leg while he was being robbed near the 1200 block of Sumner Road SE, according to police.

He was conscious and breathing when officers arrived at the scene at about 8:10 p.m., according to Officer Tisha Gant, a police spokeswoman. Further information on his condition was not immediately available.

Gant said police are seeking a black male, perhaps between 30 and 40 years old, with a thin build who was wearing a dark green shirt and blue jeans at the time of the incident.

Another man was found with multiple stab wounds in the 2800 block of Gainesville Street SE at about midnight. He was also conscious and breathing when he was discovered, Gant said. On Tuesday afternoon, police said the victim was in serious, but stable, condition.

Police continue to investigate both incidents.
