Man fatally shot in Northeast D.C.

By Debbi Wilgoren

A man was shot in the head and killed early Friday on the border of some parkland in Northeast Washington, WRC-TV (Channel 4) reported.

Police told Channel 4 that the shooting happened about 3 a.m., near the intersection of 11th and Galloway streets on the northern edge of one of the city's Fort Circle Parks. Police are looking for a gray Chevrolet Tahoe that was seen near the shooting with two people inside. No additional information was available.

The park where the shooting occurred is a crescent-shaped green space sandwiched between South Dakota Avenue and Eastern Avenue, which marks the border with Prince George's County. The area is part of the chain of Civil War-era fort sites that form a ring within the boundaries of the District.

I live in this area, and it has been entirely peaceful for years...this is a very scary occurrence that has me worried about all types of issues now. It is so amazing, how a single event can change your entire reality. I am really shaken by this crime in my community, but the snide remark posted earlier would infer that this is a normal event for this area-in addition to other underlying assumptions. It is not, and it has changed the complexion of the neighborhood in an instant. People are not animals, though their behavior can be reflective of that...I just pray for those who have lost their loved one, as well as for those who committed the act-for they too are lost in this world of violence and no longer understand the value of human life.

Wow, to awake to the news is scary bcuz this was blocks away from my house and years I lived there I never seen or heard of anyone being murder. The senseless crime of car thieves that plague any neighborhood is what I'm use to hearing. I already think twice of the time I arrive home, now I'm going to double think my activities to make sure I get home when others are out too.
