Heather went further to reveal that the woman wasn’t home or in her car when the shooting happened, “tells me she’s okay.”
Similarly, a man was shot and killed by a police officer on Orange Street SE in D.C. Wednesday afternoon.
Metropolitan Police Chief Peter Newsham said in a press conference Wednesday.
“Uniformed police officers had information that there were guys in the neighbourhood with guns, specifically,” Newsham said in a press conference. “That’s what they were looking for and evidently that’s what they found.”
Multiple guns were recovered at the scene, according to investigators. Newsham says the man who was shot was believed to be in possession of one of them.
Newsham said it is unclear if this incident was at all connected to another, earlier incident in which someone fired from inside a car at a group of police officers on South Capitol Street SW.
A woman could be heard at the press conference saying that the man who was killed was 17 years old. Police have not identified the victim or given an age, however.
Ward 8 Councilmember Trayon White spoke after Newsham and said the victim was African American, “young,” and lives just about two blocks away from the scene.
White said some in the community told him the man was shot in the back, which “don’t sit well with me,” he said. But he reminded the crowd listening to the conference that most of the information is preliminary and unconfirmed.
He said he will request body camera footage to get all the facts.
