A 15-year-old was arrested in Northeast D.C. Saturday for shooting a police officer.

Metropolitan Police say that at about 5:10 a.m. Saturday officers responded to the 700 block of Crittenden Street NE for reports of a male armed with a gun. They found a person with a gun on the porch of a residence. Officers approached the suspect and ordered him to drop his weapon. He refused, and gunfire was exchanged.

A Metropolitan Police officer was struck multiple times. The suspect fled and was later located under a porch in the 700 block of Crittenden Street, NE. A gun was recovered at the same location.

The suspect was arrested for assault with intent to kill while armed. The officer was transported to a local hospital and listed in stable condition. The suspect was treated and released for a minor injury.

Because he is a juvenile, the suspect’s name was being withheld.
