Shooting Incident Early This Morning on 700 b/o Princeton Place
The following is from a listserv email sent by Councilmember Graham providing details of a shooting incident that happened early this morning (4/6/12) on Princeton Place:
Dear Friends, this morning about 1 AM as many as 3-4 shots were fired on this block. I have spoken to the 4D Commander about this.
It is reported that a masked person on foot fired on two persons who were sitting in their vehicle. One was grazed and the other not insured. Both are adults and not from this area. They state that they were taking a break from helping someone to move. They were able to go to Ga Ave and get police assistance. The MPD shotspotter equipment (which identifies the precise location of shots) was activated.
I am greatly concerned about this. We have not had this kind of walk-by, drive-by shooting in sometime. MPD is on this and it is being actively investigated.
We will provide more as information becomes available.
Councilmember Jim Graham
