3 wounded in Trinidad

By Erica Johnston

Three people were wounded Sunday afternoon in an outbreak of gunfire in the Trinidad neighborhood of Northeast Washington, D.C. police said.

None of the wounds appeared to be life-threatening, authorities said.

The shootings occurred about 4:30 p.m. in the 1100 block of Morse Street NE, where one of the three victims was found. Two others began driving to a hospital, police said.

They were found some distance away on North Capitol Street. One was found at O Street and the other at P Street, according to the D.C. fire and emergency medical services department.

Police said both were conscious and breathing when found.

The circumstances of the shooting were not immediately clear and the matter was under investigation Sunday night.

When we get three DEAD or five more shot then we can set up road blocks again to inconvenience everybody except the drug dealers.

"The circumstances of the shooting were not immediately clear and the matter was under investigation Sunday."

Are there ever any clear circumstances with shooting by animals in the eastern part of the city?
