By Erica Johnston

Update, 7:51 p.m.:

D.C. police now say that the man who was wounded when he walked into a Northwest Washington gas station on Rhode Island Avenue late this afternoon was apparently stabbed, not shot, as was first reported to officers.

Police think the man was stabbed nearby in the 1700 block of New Jersey Avenue NW, said Officer Paul Metcalf, a police spokesman. He was taken to the hospital with wounds that were not believed to be life threatening, Metcalf said.

The victim was not cooperating with investigators, police said.


D.C. police are investigating the shooting of a man who walked to a gas station in Northwest and said he had been shot, officials said.

Police were called to a gas station in the 400 block of Rhode Island Avenue just before 4 p.m., said Lt. Nick Breul, a spokesman. The victim was found by officers with what is believed to be a gunshot wound to the back. He was conscious and breathing, Breul said.

Police were trying to determine where the man was shot and the circumstances that led to the incident.
