WASHINGTON — A woman is in the hospital after being shot in Northeast D.C. Monday morning. DC Police report a postal worker is in custody for the shooting.

Metropolitan Police Department officers were called to the 900 block of Brentwood Road Northeast around 9:40 a.m. for a report of a shooting. When officers got to the scene, they found a woman shot. She was taken to the hospital for treatment. Officers say the woman was conscious and breathing when she was taken to the hospital, but did not offer further details about the severity of her injuries.
