The Metropolitan Police Department said on November 13 that it was investigating this shooting, like other police shootings in Washington. The information and evidence collected will be independently reviewed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
Washington has seen a significant increase in robberies and car thefts this year, with more than 750 carjackings and 6,000 car thefts recorded.
