D.C. police are investigating a fight Tuesday night near the Chinatown/Gallery Place Metro station in downtown Washington, where a man may have been stabbed, officials said.

About 9:30 p.m., police were called to an area near the Metro station for the report of a fight between several people. They found an injured man in the 600 block of H Street NW, said Officer Hugh Carew, a spokesman.

The man was taken to a hospital for treatment. His condition was not immediately known, but the injuries did not appear to be life threatening, Carew said.

Witnesses told police that three juvenile males were seen leaving the area soon after the incident was reported, police said.

What a vicious and violent culture.

These kids aren't necessarily going to grow up to be thugs. They might some day write an article for the Post that makes excuses for assaulting people on the metro.

Gallery place Metro? hmmm I think I remember a large brawl happening there last summer. But that couldn't be the same stop. The Metro police would of covered that place with extra security in case something like that happened again. Must be two Gallery places in the Metro. Yep that's the ticket....

These jigaboos have zero self control. It almost seems like they need to take a valium to try and calm their hyperactivity. Metro police need to just crack down and lock some of these idiots up.

Chinatown is becoming the new union station. Sadly.

They're nice kids. They help their Grandma with the groceries & their sisters with quadratic equations. Please don't fear them.

I thought there were some rules in posting to the Wash. Post. However, look at the comments from crackerswinyoulose and TheChampisheretoo. If these comments are not incisive, racial, demeaning, derogatory and just plain hurtful; then I don't know. Wash. Post you need to upgrade your standards or remove your comments section.

You're adults. You're not a 5-year-old girl who cries when people call her names. Why are you having a nervous breakdown over WORDS?

Who are you? Little Lord Fauntleroy?

@TaxiDriver

You come here trolling everyday for articles that you can spread your racist drivel. Is it because no one listens to you at home? You never seem to post to any articles except articles about African Americans. Is it because your intellectual level isn't that high? Or because you are jealous or scared or African Americans? Beat it Troll...how's that for name calling
