Police say they responded to 511 Gresham Place, Northwest around 8:39 p.m. According to investigators, the victim told them he was “hanging out” with the suspects when one of them accused him of “stealing his weed.” The suspects then allegedly beat up the victim, with one of them pulling out a gun.
