16-Year-Old Killed in Congress Heights Shooting

A shooting in Congress Heights Thursday night killed a 16-year-old boy, the Washington Post is reporting.

Friends of the teen identified him on Facebook and Twitter as Raheem “Gunna” Jackson, an HD Woodson High School student, a point guard on the school’s basketball team and a Georgetown fan.

DC Fire and EMS responded to the 1300 block of Congress Street at around 9:30 p.m. and transported one male with a life-threatening traumatic injury.

A lookout was issued for a black male with black clothing shortly after the shooting.

RIP Raheem,” posted @RealrariTee on Twitter.
