A woman was cut on her ear during a stabbing Tuesday night in a Southeast D.C. neighborhood where gun violence has injured seven people in the last four days.

D.C. police said the attacker was also a woman. The stabbing occurred around 9 p.m. in the 3000 block of Stanton Road Southeast.

A Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman said investigators do not know what led to the stabbing.

Early Tuesday, a triple shooting that injured three men playing dominoes, occurred just a block away from the site of the stabbing outside of an apartment at 2408 Elvans Road Southeast. On Saturday, four people, including two teenagers, were injured in a shooting in the 2800 block of Stanton Road.


No arrests have been made in either of the shootings. Police were investigating whether the incidents could be related based on their proximity but have no information to that effect thus far, a police spokeswoman said.
