The man shot Saturday night in Columbia Heights has died, D.C. police said Sunday.
He was identified by police Sunday as Jonathan Sanchez Estep, 24, of Taussig Place, NE.

Police said he was found in the 3000 block of 11th Street NW about 8:30 p.m., and taken to a hospital, where he later died.

Police said Saturday that he had been wounded in the chest area. No additional information about the circumstances of the shooting was available Sunday.

A wounded man was found in the vicinity, but it was not clear from available accounts whether he had been shot or stabbed. His injuries were not believed to be serious.

"Man shot, hurt..."

Has there ever been a situation in which a man has been shot AND NOT HURT?

Maybe the Post should hire an editor for their online edition.

yes, there have been such shot and bullet hits magic wristband, hits police-shield, "just a flesh-wound", and so on.

Chuck Norris was shot once.
The bullet died.

Columbia Heights is a h3ll hole. Too many subsidized housing projects. Too many illegals. It's scary to think that I was on the cusp of buying a condo there for around $400K one year ago. Not only would I have been underwater in my mortgage but I would have to contend with gunshots, muggings, and stabbings. Yuk, it's not worth it. That place is not worth the hype. It's still the ghetto.

One can get shot anywhere, but let's face it...Col. Hghts. is just not a nice place...too much subsidized housing = people who don't have a vested interest in their 'hood.

Then why the heck all the 'non subsidized' gentrifiers moving in? Because, these people have been there the last 40+ years......

Learning is fundamental...

So, how are those gun control laws working out?

Posted by: poopieface | July 11, 2010 7:32 PM | Report abuse

Actually, the gun laws have been very useful in getting a lot of thugs off the street who might have walked otherwise. Which is of course why cops and prosecutors and everybody else with a professional interest in law and order supports gun control, and why so many of us who actually live here support gun control.

Sad that another person has been murdered. Maybe he wasn't a good person...we don't know yet and maybe he was a wonderful guy in the wrong place at the wrong time...but at some point he was an innocent child and we don't know what factors lead to his death.

Colombia Heights has too many "savages" roaming the streets. The white gay gentirfiers had better think twice before moving to Colombia Heights.
