A senior staff member with the District’s Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services is on leave recovering from injuries he suffered when he was shot during a suspected robbery attempt, the agency’s director announced in an email to staff Tuesday.

Jeff McInnis, chief of detained services and superintendent at the Youth Services Center, had been away from the office for a week and a half, prompting an email to staff from interim DYRS Director Neil Stanley addressing the situation.

“Unfortunately, Jeff was shot in his arm during this incident. MPD is actively investigating the matter. In spite of this difficult situation, Jeff’s injuries are not life threatening and he is recuperating at home with the support of his family and loved ones,” Mr. Stanley wrote in an email to staff obtained by The Washington Times.

No further information was available last night.
