A man was killed and another injured in two overnight shootings in the District.

Rahmann Jamal Ward, 32, of Southeast was fatally shot late Tuesday in a neighborhood near Oxon Run Parkway, D.C. police said.

Officers responding to reports of gunfire about 10 p.m. found Mr. Ward in the 3500 block of 18th Street SE, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, police spokeswoman Saray Leon said.

Police currently have no suspects or motive.

In a separate shooting early Wednesday, a 30-year-old man was shot in the leg about 1 a.m. in the 700 block of Shepherd Street in Northwest.

The victim was “not cooperative” and police have no description of the suspect, Ms. Leon said.
