    D.C. Officer's Weapon Linked to Violent Crimes

    WASHINGTON -- A gun reported missing by a D.C. Police officer has now been linked to several attempted murders that have left at least one victim hospitalized.

    "We have connected it to a couple of shootings and I believe, a robbery -- a couple of them were assault with attempt to kill," D.C. Police Chief Charles Ramsey said on Washington Post Radio's Ask The Chief program on Thursday.

    The officer reported the gun missing in January, and the weapon was used in several shootings were victims were wounded, Ramsey said.

    The officer -- a lieutenant in the 4th District -- was suspended for 30 days for losing her weapon, Ramsey said.

    Police recovered the gun during an investigation of the escape of two inmates from the D.C. Jail.

    A separate investigation will determine the accuracy of the officer's account of the stolen gun, Ramsey said.

    "Maybe it wasn't stolen. We just need to look into it. We may never know," Ramsey said.

    However, the officer with the missing weapon was not involved in the shootings or the jail escape, Ramsey said.

    A 16-year-old boy was arrested at the home where the gun was recovered and charged with possession of a stolen weapon, Ramsey said.

    Sources tell WTOP the shootings may have been gang related.

    Geez, I had a guy do an armed robbery by writing the holdup note on the back of one of my business cards. They didn't ask me if I was involved in it.

    Heh, one night I came into work and there was photo of a bank holdup and the guy looked exactly like me! It even scared me until I realized I didn't own any clothes like the guy was wearing!

    The business card thing made me a little more selective about who I handed them out to afterwards though.

    Hmmmm, I took a theft report from an LEO visiting from another state.
