Security guard shot over parking lot dispute in DC

WASHINGTON — A security guard was shot Saturday night in Southeast D.C.

The man had gone to an apartment complex in the 2300 block of Green Street SE at around 8 p.m. to see his girlfriend, but he was parked in a section reserved for residents, according to D.C. police.

Two special police officers working security for the complex told the man that he needed to park in the visitor section of the lot.

As the man was driving away, he shot at the security guards, striking a female officer in the upper leg.

She was taken to a hospital for her injury. The other guard was not hurt.

Police are still investigating the shooting.
