WASHINGTON (AP) - Six people have been shot - one fatally - and another stabbed overnight in separate incidents around the nation’s capital.

Police say the incidents occurred over a span of about five hours, starting in the waning hours of July Fourth.

In the first, police spokeswoman Aquita Brown says police say a group of eight to 10 children was watching fireworks in northwest Washington around 11 p.m. Tuesday when one boy was shot. He was taken to a hospital for treatment.

About an hour later, Brown says a man found shot in southwest Washington. The man, later identified as 46-year-old George Denny Jr., was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

One person was stabbed in northwest Washington around 2:15 a.m.
