WASHINGTON - Three men have been arrested in connection with an early morning shooting in the heart of a nightlife corridor in Washington over the weekend.

Police say two women were shot, each in a leg, after an argument between two groups of men at 11th and U streets in Northwest about 2:45 a.m. Saturday.

Court documents show two police officers in the area head the gunshots and saw three men running from the direction of the gunfire. Records show the men got into a car and tried to leave, but got stuck in traffic.

Police later recovered a handgun from the scene.

Court records show 23-year-old Kyree Lathern, 22-year-old Delonte Anthony Butler and 21-year-old Malcolm Xavier Fonville were arrested and charged with carrying a firearm in a car.
