Teen shot in SE D.C.

By Erica Johnston


A teenaged male was shot and seriously wounded late Wednesday in the Benning Heights area of Southeast Washington, D.C. police said.

Officers were called for the report of a shooting in the 4400 block of F Street about 5 p.m. and found the youth wounded on a sidewalk, police said. He was taken to a local hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries, said Pete Piringer, a fire department spokesman.

Authorities did not immediately know the teenager's age or the circumstances of the shooting. Police dogs and patrol cars searched about a nine-square-block perimeter near Benning Road in search of evidence.

F both of ya'll. I live near the shooting and its not another day in Benning Heights. Things happen all over the DMV and it this is one of those things that just happen to happen in the Benning Heights area. If you have never been there, you will know that its not a bad area, just a area with a few bad people.

I hear what you are saying but it would be disingenous to suggest that shootings and killings occur in the same frequency throughout the DMV. Benning Heights may not be that bad of an area but compared to many parts in MoCo and NoVa it is bad. Just a thought and not a sermon.
