Five shot overnight in three incidents in D.C., P.G.
Question of the Day
Five people were shot, though none fatally, overnight in the District and Prince George’s County, police said Thursday.
Three men were injured in a shooting in the 4900 block of 7th Street in Northwest Wednesday evening, a Metropolitan Police Department spokesman said. Police responded to the area around 7:40 p.m. for a report of a shooting. The men’s injuries were not life-threatening. A man in his late teens or early 20s is being sought for the shooting, police said.
Two people were also shot in Temple Hills and Lanham in unrelated incidents in Prince George’s County overnight, county police said.
A man was taken to a hospital in critical condition just before midnight Wednesday after officers found him suffering from a gunshot wound in the 3200 block of Temple Hill Road. No update was available on his condition Thursday.
A second man reported an unrelated shooting to police after admitting himself to a local hospital. Police said the man was shot in the 6010 block of Princess Garden Parkway in Lanham around 2 a.m. His injuries were not life-threatening.
No further information about the victims in the three shootings or any suspects was available Thursday.
