A 35-year-old man shot to death Friday night in front of the Shaw-Howard University Metro station used to live in the area and may have been known by his attackers, police said yesterday. Police were seeking at least two suspects, one of whom had a handgun.
A gang calling itself the 8th and R Crew had long been harassing and robbing people going in and out of the station. Police, who confirmed there has been gang activity in the area, canvassed the area yesterday but found little. "It's not a police-friendly neighborhood. It's really not."
