shooting - 1300 blk I st SW - 2 victims Priority 1 - serious and life-threatening transp to hosp PD investigatingAs far as I know, and I could be wrong, there is no 1300 block of I Street, SW. Or the shooting was on a boat located at an estimated location of 1300 I Street, SW.
Perhaps they meant the 1300 block of 1st Street. Or maybe it was in SE? There's not really a 1300 block in Southeast either. Was it downtown? I think we'd see more coverage if it was at 13th and I NW.
Remember folks, this is the same @dcfireems that will keep you informed in the event of a nuclear blast.
UPDATE: WUSA9 is parroting the incorrect tweet:
WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA)-- Two men were transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries after a shooting on the 1300 block of Eye Street SW.At this point, with the reference to N St SW, I'll speculate the shooting was actually in the 1300 block of 1st Street SW. Way to fact check, WUSA9.
DC Police say the shooting occurred at approximately 1:15 PM. They say they found one man at the above location and a second man was found shot in the neck in the alley way off N Street SW.
Police say they still don't have a motive for the shooting but they are looking for a black male, wearing a black hoodie, and blue jeans,
Police also recovered a weapon at the scene.
We will have more on the story on 9NEWS NOW and WUSA9.COM

UPDATE x2: I tweeted a correction to @WUSA9:
@WUSA9 @dcfireems I'm pretty sure you all mean the 1300 block of 1st Street SW. Because 1300 Eye Street SW doesn't exist.
Their response was:
@DaveStroup It's 1300 I street as in the letter I, it's spelled out as eye so people don't think it's 1st street :-) thanks!Now I'm just shaking my head.
How did everyone else do? Well, WJLA sort of gets it right, they say "Southwest" in the headline. But then they report the address as the 1300 block of 1st Street NW.
