D.C. police responded to the 1400 block of H Street Northeast on May 30 around 12:45 p.m. for the report of a shooting.

When officers arrived at the scene of the crime — in front of Tony's Place — they found one man suffering from gunshot wounds. A preliminary investigation by police revealed that a disgruntled customer allegedly shot the employee. 

Medics drove the victim to the hospital, police said, but at this time his condition has not been disclosed.
