WASHINGTON - Three people were killed in a drive-by shooting that wounded six others in the nation's capital, officials said late Tuesday.

One shooting victim died at the scene in southeastern Washington, D.C., one was dead on arrival at the hospital, and the third died in the operating room, said Carolyn Hammond, spokeswoman for Washington Hospital Center. She said a fourth person was in critical condition late Tuesday.

The shootings of six men and three women happened about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the area around the 4000 block of South Capitol Street, said D.C. Police Department spokesman Officer Hugh Carew. Fire Department spokesman Pete Piringer says all were in their 20s and 30s, except for one teenager.

Police say three people have been arrested and a weapon was recovered. Police said they had no motive for the shootings is known.

Four D.C. officers were slightly injured while pursuing a suspect's vehicle into neighboring Prince George's County, authorities said.

The neighborhood is near a water treatment plant and sections of southeastern D.C. have problems with crime.


I found this on MSNBC this morning.

This shouldn't be possible, since DC is basically a gun free zone right?:rolleyes:

looks like the gun control works as well as the hope and change.

Maybe it was done with normal, non-dangerous weapons with low capacity clips.

As said before:

Just because a news story has a gun associated with it does NOT make it suitable for discussion on THR. News stories are suitable for discussion here only when the story contains clear and unambiguous self-defense, home defense, firearms-centric, or RKBA aspects *and* when there is readily discernible detail in the news accounts sufficient to support a rational discussion.
