A man was stabbed in the upper body Thursday night near the shopping center anchored by Target in the Columbia Heights area of Northwest Washington, police said.

The victim was attacked at 14th and Monroe streets about 8:30 p.m., said Officer Hugh Carew, a police spokesman. The victim's condition could not be immediately learned.

Police arrested another man, believed to be the assailant, Carew said.

I heard several shots around 4 p.m. today in Adams-Morgan (at 17th & Euclid), and there were dozens of police swarming after. Any news on what may have happened?

Columbia Heights is still a dump. I am glad I didn't buy into the hype and buty a condo there. It's a mix of barrio and ghetto. Thrown in are some young white gays and professionals as well as college students. Sure it's an ecletic mix but no way a decent place to live.

ForzaItalia, this is from the Yahoo 3D Substation Digest:

At approximately 5:00 pm this evening MPD units responded for the sounds of gunshots in the 1700 block of Euclid St NW.
A victim who was the intended target was located however they were not struck by the gun fire.

The units on foot patrol in the area and responding units made two arrests.

Used to live at 18th and Park Rd before I moved to the West Coast two years ago. It seems that 16th St is the DMZ. As soon as you cross 16th St the surrounding area changes drastically into crap. At least that's how it was in '08. Not surprised to hear it hasn't changed since then.
