Three people were shot, one fatally, overnight in the District.

The Metropolitan Police Department said the fatal shooting was reported around 3 a.m. in a neighborhood in the 300 block of 34th Street in Southeast, police said. Two men were shot. One of the men, Christopher Emanuel Freeman, 28, of Southeast, died from his injuries at the scene, Metropolitan police said.

A non-fatal shooting was reported late Thursday near the intersection of Bladensburg Road and V Street Northeast, in an industrial strip where several nightclubs are located. Officers were called to the area around 11:45 p.m. and found a man suffering from a gunshot wound but conscious and breathing. Police put out a look out for a man driving a green, four-door Lincoln Town Car.

No further information was available about either of the shootings early Friday afternoon.
