Three men shot in NE; are expected to survive

Three men were shot and seriously wounded Wednesday night in Southeast Washington, D.C. police said.

Authorities found the victims conscious and breathing in the 3100 block of Buena Vista Terrace about 9:45 p.m. said Officer Paul Metcalf, a spokesman. The victims were taken to a hospital with serious wounds, but all were expected to survive, Metcalf said.

Police had no description of any suspect and released no motive in the incident.

Clarence Williams is the night police reporter for The Washington Post and has spent the better part of 13 years standing next to crime scene tape, riding in police cars or waking officials in the middle of night to gather information about breaking news in and around Washington.
