Violence Erupts in Petworth

Acording to the newswires, DC police are searching for the person(s) who opened fire on a car just before 6:00 yesterday evening.  

Police say the suspects fired more than 20 shots at the car in the 5100 block of 7th Street Northwest (between Gallatin and Hamilton). Detectives say the woman was shot in the shoulder and the three-year-old child was injured from shattered glass.

Both were taken to area hospitals and are expected to fully recover. This is the latest in a string of violent crime to happen in this neighborhood this year.  Photos of the scene can be found at the Prince Of Petworth.
