Shooting at Sherman Circle this morning

There was a shooting at Sherman Circle at the 4700 block of Kansas Avenue this morning just before noon (between Decatur and the Circle). Really don't understand people sometimes. 

Note from 4D Commander Manlapaz:

On today’s date, around 11:40 am, MPD units were dispatched to the 4700 block of Illinois Avenue, NW, for the sounds of gunshots and a victim that had been shot.  An adult male was located suffering from gunshot wounds.  He was transported by DCFEMS to a local hospital for emergency medical treatment.  The injuries appear to be non-life threatening. The lookout for the suspects were (2) black males wearing ski masks and wearing dark clothing.  They were last seen fleeing on foot north towards Decatur Street, NW. 

From the listserv email:

There was a shooting just north of Sherman Circle just before noon.  Police on scene and victim just loaded into ambulance.  No other information at this time.  Could it be related to the one on Thursday just south of Sherman Circle?
