2 are shot over two days in D.C.’s NoMa area

A man was shot late Saturday on the edge of the District’s fast-developing NoMa neighborhood, in the second such incident in that area in two days. Neither victim suffered life-threatening wounds.

Police heard gunshots Saturday night and found a wounded man in the unit block of M Street NW. They pursued a car that sped from the scene, and took two people into custody on charges of unauthorized use of a vehicle.

The incident remained under investigation Sunday, police said.

Friday’s shooting occurred about three blocks away near North Capitol Street and New York Avenue in the late afternoon. At least one person was taken into custody in that incident, police said, but details were not immediately available.

Two other shootings were reported Friday. One was also on North Capitol Street but near Michigan Avenue, about two miles to the north. Another occurred Friday evening in the 1400 block of V Street NW, near the U Street NW corridor.
