D.C. woman caught in crossfire
By Matt Zapotosky
A 50-year-old Lexington Park woman was seriously injured Saturday afternoon after she got caught in the crossfire of a shooting in Southeast Washington police said.
The woman was stopped at a traffic light at the intersection of Suitland Parkway and Stanton Road SE just after 3 p.m. when two masked men opened fire in the direction of her car, police said. The gunfire was intended for someone else in the area, but it riddled her car with bullet holes and struck her in the abdomen, said Sgt. Nicholas Breul, a D.C. police spokesman.
No one else was injured in the shooting, and the two men fled, Breul said. The woman was transported to George Washington University Hospital with injuries not thought to be life threatening, he said. Breul said the suspects have not been caught and investigators are not sure who they were targeting.
