Police investigating the scene closed area streets to traffic.
A drive-by shooting that left 13 wounded earlier this week has raised concerns for residents in the surrounding NoMA neighborhood of D.C.
NoMA, short for North of Massachusetts Avenue, contains the communities of Truxton circle and Near Northeast, both of which are undergoing rapid redevelopment, supported by a billion-dollar private investment.
It's also home to Sursum Corda, a low-income housing development that has been plagued by crime and violence since the 1980s.
Josh Young, who lives with his wife in Truxton Circle, says the shooting in the early morning hours Monday is an unfortunate part of the fabric of the neighborhood, but it won't drive them away.
"I think the good outweighs the bad. I think it's changing for the better, and I don t think we'll leave," says Young.
The NoMA district extends north from Massachusetts Avenue to R Street, between First NW and Fourth NE.
