I am sure that many of you like me were not happy to see the Edgewood shooting on DC Alerts yesterday. However, I was happy to see the email this morning that an arrest was made the same day! The email from MPD is copied below:
On January 13, 2011, at approximately 2pm a 16 year old male subject was approached by another male subject in the 600 block of Edgewood Street NE. During their interaction the suspect produced a gun firing several times striking the victim twice. The victim sustained non-life threatening injuries and currently is in stable condition. Officers were able to respond directly to the scene and obtain critical information.
Detectives immediately began to follow up on the leads associated with this case and were able to close this case with an arrest within 10 hours of the incident!
