By Clarence Williams

Two people were shot and seriously wounded Thursday night in two separate incidents in Southeast Washington, D.C. police said.

The first victim was was a woman who shot near the intersection of 34th and A streets about 6:50 p.m., said Officer Paul Metcalf, a spokesman. The woman was taken to a hospital with serious wounds, but officials expected her to survive, Metcalf said.

A car was heard speeding from the scene by witnesses, but it was not immediately clear what prompted the shooting.

The second incident happened about two hours later, when a man was critically wounded in the 2200 block of Savannah Street just before 9 p.m., Metcalf said. Police had no details to release about the cause of the shooting.
