Several Wounded, 1 Killed in Shootings in DC Sunday

Eight others slain since Wednesday in DC

Several people were shot, one fatally, in three separate shooting incidents in D.C. on Sunday.

A victim suffered from gunshot wounds in the 2600 block of Sherman Avenue NW at 1 a.m. Sunday. He is in critical condition at an area hospital, police said.

Two other victims were shot at about 7:30 p.m. in Southeast D.C. Police were called to the 1300 block of Congress Street SE, where they found the victims, both men, and encountered a large crowd. More officers were called in to get the crowd under control.

One of the victims suffered multiple gunshot wounds and died of his injuries. He has been identified as 27-year-old Jamal Bandy.

The other victim had a single gunshot wound to an extremity and was being treated for non-life-threatening injuries, police said. 

The third incident happened about 90 minutes later in Northeast D.C. and involved four victims.

Police were called shortly before 9 p.m. to the 2300 block of 15th Street NE, where they found three of the victims, all men, suffering from gunshot wounds. A fourth victim was later taken to a hospital in a private vehicle, police said. 

None of those victims' injuries were life-threatening, police said.

It wasn't immediately known what led up to either shooting. Police have not yet released more details.

Eight people have been fatally shot in the District in recent days, including an 11-year-old boy, Karon Brown, who was slain Thursday evening while in a car near the intersection of Naylor Road and Alabama Avenue SE.

"You don't know how much you've taken away from us," his mother said, addressing the shooter. 

At least 93 people have been killed in D.C. this year.

D.C. officials are planning to speak Monday about the violence and will share information on how people who live and work in the District can help police fight crime.
