Man shot on edge of Capitol Hill

By Martin Weil

A man was shot and wounded Sunday afternoon near the eastern edge of the Capitol Hill neighborhood, D.C. police said.

The victim was hit in the leg about 4:50 p.m. near the 1300 block of I Street SE, police said.

The wound did not appear to be life-threatening.

There was no immediate indication of what led to the gunfire, and the incident remained under investigation Sunday night.

I can't believe the WaPo still uses the old coding from the Crack era when somebody gets shot on the "Edge" of Capitol Hill, another way of saying don't be scared white folks, this wasn't near you, but then again, white folks are everwhere in D.C. now.

I caught that too. Either it's on Capitol Hill or it is not. Stop playing games. I didn't see the headline about the shooting in Capitol Heights described as being on the "edge" of Prince George's County (which it is). The Post is a trip. And they wonder why the Black community does not take the Post's political endorsements seriously.

How about "Unsurprisingly, man shot near public housing project." (Potomac Gardens, 14th n G SE). Would that be a better description for ya?
