Shots fired at D.C. officer

Matt Zapotosky

Someone fired a gun at a D.C. police officer who was investigating the sound of gunfire early Monday morning, police said.

The incident occurred about 12:30 a.m. in the 2100 block of Queens Chapel Road NE, police said.

The officer, who was a block away from that location, heard what sounded like gunshots and approached a dark green Jeep Cherokee with tinted windows to investigate, police said. Someone in the vehicle then fired at the officer, police said.

None of the shots hit anyone, and the Cherokee fled the scene, police said.
