2 shot in SE Washington

By Erica Johnston

Two men were shot Thursday night in Southeast Washington, D.C. police said.

Officers were sent to the 1600 block of 17th Place for the reporting of a shooting and found two victims about 9:40, said Officer Hugh Carew, a spokesman. According to preliminary information, one victim was taken to a hospital with critical wounds and the other with serious wounds, officials said.

Police received reports that four or five people were seen running through an alley from the scene, but it was not clear if they were involved with the shooting, Carew said.

Nah...I think it's two more victims...Yesterday it was one in Capital Heights and one in NW. If these were DC resident soldiers killed in Afghanistan, it'd be front page...instead it just ho hummm.

This kind of thing happens so often it's difficult to lose track. Did someone disrespect someone? That is the worst thing you can do to someone. Or was it the usual beef between drug dealers or gang dispute. If they want to kill each other, fine. Knock yourself out. Just don't kill innocent people.

I'm sooooo glad I can afford to live where I do in Fairfax County. I lived in the hood back in the day & it ain't fun or pretty. In fact, it's depressing, scary, dirty, smelly, etc. Filled with wannabe tough guys & thugs. Stupid, ignorant teenage girls popping out babies like a soda machine. The kind of place you want to get out of IMMEDIATELY.
