Shooting at 2nd & W 

Good Evening,

MPD is currently investigating a shooting that occurred tonight around 11:59 pm on the 200 block of W Street, NW. An adult victim was shot and is in critical condition.

This being one of several incidents in this area recently, I want to be sure community members are aware that we have been bringing targeted resources to the area, including additional police presence as well violence interrupters trained to intervene when there are recurring incidents in a particular area. 

If you live on the 200 block of W St NW and have a private security camera that faces the street, please contact MPD at 202-727-9099. The Commander and I both encourage residents to participate in DC’s Private Security Camera Incentive Program: follow this link to find out more.​

This incident occurred in Police Service Area 306. Police Service Areas (PSAs) are how MPD divides up its Police Districts (Ward 1 is part of Districts 3 and 4). PSAs regularly meet to engage with the community on issues of public safety. You can stay updated on developments in the 3rd Police District and learn about upcoming PSA meetings by subscribing to the official MPD listserv for the area.
