D.C. Housing Authority Chief of Police Michael Reese said the shooting happened at the Carroll Apartments, a senior living building, in the 400 block of M Street around 5:45 a.m.

The veteran male officer was on regular patrol and encountered a male suspect who was asked to leave the area. The suspect opened fire on the officer, striking him in the torso. The officer was taken to the hospital and is in stable condition. Reese said the suspected gunman fled to a nearby building about a block away and was barricaded inside a parking area for several hours until he, and a female, were taken into custody.

FOX 5’s Stephanie Ramirez was on the scene and said the large police response prompted a two-hour delay at nearby Van Ness Elementary School. Police assisted students who were at the school and transported them to nearby Jefferson Middle School. Many roads in the area were closed as the investigation unfolded and police ordered nearby residents to shelter in place and stay inside their homes. The alert was lifted just before 10:30 a.m.

On February 14, three D.C. police officers were shot, leading to an hours-long standoff in southeast Washington. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials confirmed that the man accused of shooting the officers was in the U.S. illegally.

What is a housing authority officer?

The District of Columbia Housing Authority Police Department enforces laws, ordinances, rules, and regulations of the Housing Authority. The department is made up of both uniformed and plainclothes personnel.

According to the D.C. Council’s website, they “have the power to execute any traffic citation or any criminal process (misdemeanor or felony) issued by any court of the District, or any felony, misdemeanor, or other offense against District laws, ordinances, rules, or regulations.”
