WASHINGTON (WDVM) — A D.C. police officer and one other person were hit by gunfire after a shooting Tuesday evening in Northwest D.C., authorities confirm.
The Metropolitan Police Department says a neighbor called police to report a person on a nearby balcony with what they say was a long gun.
When police arrived at V Street NW, they tried to deescalate the situation, but one officer fired shots at the man. He was taken to a local hospital where he later died.
Another officer was also hit by gunfire.
Officers have not yet confirmed the extent of the officer’s or the subject’s injuries.
