Six wounded in separate shootings in D.C.

Six people were shot and wounded in four separate incidents in Southeast Washington Monday night into Tuesday morning, according to D.C. police. None of the injuries were believed to be life threatening, authorities said.

The latest shooting occurred about 2:45 a.m. Tuesday, in the 1300 block of Morris Road SE, in Anacostia. Officer Anthony Clay, a D.C. police spokesman, said a man walking along the street was approached by an individual in a dark-colored vehicle, who got out and threatened him with a gun.

Clay said the victim, an adult male, told police the gunman said, “Give me the money.” The victim tried to run, Clay said, at which point the gunman shot him in the back and the legs. He was taken to an area hospital for treatment.

About 9:50 p.m. Monday, police said two men were shot in the legs in the 1400 block of Good Hope Road SE, also in Anacostia. Police said one victim went to a hospital by himself, another went in an ambulance. Police had no details on this shooting and no description of the gunman.

Police said that two people were shot, including a 17-year-old, about 7:30 p.m. in the 300 block of 34th St. SE, just off Minnesota Avenue. Clay said that one man was shot in legs and was taken to an area hospital. He said the juvenile was shot in the arm and was taken to a hospital by a friend.

About a half-hour earlier, police said, a man told police he was approached by a man who shot him in the leg. That shooting occurred about 6:55 p.m. in the 4500 block of Benning Road SE.

No arrests have been made in any of the cases.
