The District of Columbia's police department says it's investigating the death of a man who was shot on H Street and that the department's preliminary information is that the man who died was attempting to rob two other people who were shot.
Police say officers responded to the sound of gunshots in the 700 block of H Street NE around 1 a.m. Saturday.
Police say they found three adult men suffering from apparent gunshot wounds and that one of the men died on the scene.
Police identified the man who died as 32-year-old Jerome Leroy Wright of Washington. Police say the two other men were taken to area hospitals. They did not release their conditions.
An attempt to reach Wright's family by telephone Saturday was unsuccessful.
