Massive Dupont Circle Shooting/Stabbing Kills One Person

Six people were injured in a stabbing and shooting in Dupont Circle early Sunday morning and NBC Washington reports one of them has died.

The Metropolitan Police Department confirmed that three adult males were shot and three other people were stabbed in the 1300 block of Connecticut Avenue. The incident reportedly happened at around 2:45 a.m. Sunday.

WTOP reports that the incident took place near Heritage India restaurant and that no arrests have been made.

A DC Alert at 6 a.m. stated that the 1300 block of Connecticut Avenue NW would be closed from DuPont Circle to N Street “until further notice.”

An ad shared on Twitter showed that a club party was planned at Heritage Lounge Saturday night with “Free Shots for ladies All night” and “Holla at me if you make plays at the table. Bottles on Deck.”

Update: Police told the Washington Post a “fight began inside the Heritage India restaurant and club and spilled out onto the sidewalk where three men were shot and three more were stabbed.”
