A 14-year-old was shot in the chest and two other teens also suffered gunshot wounds in the 300 block of Parkland Place SE just after 6 p.m., said Officer Sean Hickman, a police spokesman.
They were taken to hospitals with wounds initially believed to be non-life threatening, Hickman said.
About 20 minutes later, police responded to a shooting in the 3000 block of Buena Vista Terrace SE, where authorities found a wounded man who was conscious and breathing, Hickman said.
Later in Northwest, a man was found unconscious and not breathing after a shooting at Georgia Avenue and Farragut Street about 8:30 p.m. Homicide detectives were called to investigate.
Authorities were searching for a green, late model SUV that was last seen travelling southbound on Georgia Avenue.
About 8:45 p.m., police were called to the 300 block of Atlantic Street SE where officers found a man who was stabbed, Hickman said. The victim was conscious and breathing at the scene.
