Public Execution-Style Shootings Occurring in D.C.

Washington, D.C., has gun control–lots and lots of gun control–and execution-style shootings are taking place in public.

For example, The Washington Post describes a shooting that occurred “in front of a Metrobus … [in] Northwest Washington’s Park View neighborhood” in July. In that attack, the gunman ran up Georgia Avenue and shot a 33-year-old victim in the back, then stood over the collapsed victim and “shot him two more times.”

Witnesses described the shooting as a “straight up execution,” pointing out that it occurred “right in the middle of a main thoroughfare of Washington, D.C.”

Like many of the surging homicides in D.C., the execution in Park View remains unsolved.

D.C. has witnessed a “23 percent” increase in homicides this year, and gun crime in general is also climbing sharply. The Washington Post reports there were “1,183” gun crimes in D.C. from January to July 2015, whereas there were “983” crimes during the same period in 2014, “1,168” in 2013, and “1,143” in 2012. Summer gun crime stats–crimes occurring in June and July–showed “428” in 2015, “333” in 2014, “337” in 2013, and “322” in 2012.
