D.C. police are hunting for a gunman who shot a man and a woman in Southeast D.C. early Monday, police said.

The pair came under gunfire in the 4500 block of Benning Road SE about 3 a.m., said Lt. Nick Breul, a police spokesman. One bullet pierced the woman’s arm. It was not clear where the man was hit, but police said he was possibly shot more than once. Both victims were taken to a nearby hospital in stable condition.

Police described the suspect as an African American man in his 20s between 5’8” and 5’9” wearing faded blue jeans and a black t-shirt with tattoos on both arms.

gun violence is definitely out of control and there doesn't seem to be an end in sight. With that said, maybe it's me, but why are folks out at 3am??

Being out at 3am is not justification to a victim of gun violence. When I lived in DC I worked in IT for two different companies one MCI the other XM radio. IT is a 24X7 job. There are so many other examples as well. Further more why should one have to limit there hours of socializing for the benefit of hoodlums. Clean up your city or get smart and move.
