On Thursday, May 25 morning, someone in a car in Southeast D.C. fired shots at another vehicle waiting at a red light. A woman was taken to the hospital but is in good spirits.
A ShotSpotter report of eight shots fired prompted DC police to respond to the 800 block of Southern Avenue, Southeast, around 7 a.m. After searching the area, responding police discovered a blue Ford Fusion with the engine running and numerous bullet holes in the passenger side. There was no sign of the driver, and the door was wide open.
