Concern is heightened after three people were shot within two days in D.C.’s Columbia Heights neighborhood.
On Friday, two men were wounded in a daytime shooting along Columbia Road near an elementary school. They are recovering from their injuries.
And before the weekend was over, D.C. police said a man was critically wounded in a shooting early Sunday on Hiatt Place near Park Road.
It’s not certain if there’s a connection between these incidents.
There have been several shootings in the Columbia Heights neighborhood this year — including a woman shot one Saturday night in April, and a man shot to death on a February afternoon that led to a lockdown at a nearby elementary school.
Ward 1 D.C. Councilwoman Brianne Nadeau told WTOP having more police around is just one part of violence prevention efforts in the ward.
