Nobody in the neighborhood, a tightly packed hamlet of small homes, called 911 until almost an hour after the shots were fired, law enforcement sources say, hampering efforts to make quick arrests or gather leads. Canvassing the neighborhood has yielded little useful information.</p></blockquote> Laura AmicoTue, 13 Sep 2011 08:06:01 -0400 Lee JacksonBobby Lee Jackson killed in NE DC Shooting <p><script src="/static/assets/js/loader.js"></script><br /> <script> new HomicideMap({ container: "#HW-homicide-embed-78", filter: { id: 78 }, width: 500, height: 350, options: { zoom: 15, scrollwheel: false, center: new google.maps.LatLng(38.896104, -76.916231) } }).render(); </script><br /> An early morning shooting in Northeast DC killed a man Saturday, police said Saturday evening.</p> <p>The victim was identified as Bobby Lee Jackson of Northwest DC.
