Several DC Preppies were present at the facility playing rec basketball at the time of the shooting, after EMC track and field practice ended. Thankfully, none of them were injured in the incident, but the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) reported that three other non-DC Prep individuals were. MPD is continuing to investigate the situation, and we will be formally asking them to increase their presence at this facility in the future for the safety of our greater community. Our thoughts are with the injured and their families. Three boys are in the hospital after being shot Tuesday evening in D.C., police say. Police say all three were conscious and breathing when they were taken to the hospital. D.C. Police say the shooting took place in the 300 block of Franklin Street NE.
