    A confrontation over littering in Northeast Washington ended in a shooting when a man was injured after asking three people to pick up their trash.

    D.C. police said they responded to a shooting in the 800 block of Crittenden Street NE in the Michigan Park neighborhood around 5:30 p.m. on Sunday where they found a man suffering from a gunshot wound.
