(WASHINGTON POST) An off-duty D.C. police detective was shot and another off-duty officer came under attack early Wednesday amid a recent burst of violence in the District.
Police said the same group, riding in a car, fired on the officers in separate incidents only minutes apart in Southeast Washington. The detective told authorities that he was attacked while being carjacked in his personal sport-utility vehicle.
District officials said that the investigation was continuing and that there was no immediate indication that the assailants knew their targets were law enforcement officers.
