Man runs for help after being shot in face

- The Washington Times - Wednesday, June 20, 2012

A man was shot in the face at a Southeast D.C. apartment complex Wednesday morning but managed to run to a nearby barbershop to call police, officials said.

The shooting happened around 11 a.m. in the 2400 block of Skyland Place at the Skyland Apartments, said Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Officer Araz Alali. One man was shot multiple times, including in the face.

The man ran from the apartments to a barber shop several blocks away on Good Hope Road to report that he had been shot. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

At the scene of the shooting, officers found another man who sustained cuts to his face, Officer Alali said. That man is being detained as a possible suspect in the shooting.

No further information was available Wednesday afternoon on the condition of the shooting victim or the reason behind the attack.
