Man Dead After Gunshot Wound to Head in Double NE DC Shooting

A double shooting reported Monday evening in Northeast DC has been confirmed as a homicide.

The fifth district commander reported last night on a community listserv that “At about 5:30 pm, two adult men were shot near 21st and M St. NE. One victim was unconscious at the scene and one taken to the hospital in critical condition.”

Reported WUSA this morning:

Police confirm one of the victims, an adult male, was shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene. The second man shot was transported to a local hospital where he is said to be “stable”.

Added NBC Washington:

One man in the neighborhood ran past the police tape after hearing a friend was one of the victims and had to be cuffed and placed in a police cruiser. He was released after he calmed down.
