Two wounded in Southeast D.C. shootings

Two men were wounded in separate Thursday afternoon shootings in Southeast Washington, police said.

In the first case, investigators are trying to determine where and why a man was shot after he walked into a hospital just before 4 p.m., officials said.

Minutes later, police responded to the 4600 block of Hillside Road SE, about 4 miles from the hospital investigation, said Officer Paul Metcalf, a police spokesman. The victim of that shootingwas found conscious and breathing,.

Police were looking for a man in his twenties wearing blue jeans who was seen fleeing the scene, officials said.
