An adult man was found shot in Washington Circle early Sunday morning, according to a U.S. Park Police official.

U.S. Park Police Sergeant Twiname said police received a call at about 12:45 a.m. for an adult male suffering from a gunshot wound who was transported to a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. Twiname said he did not have information on the suspect.

A U.S. Park Police spokesperson said the agency is investigating the case but does not know if the individual was shot in Washington Circle.

University officials issued an alert at 1:16 a.m. for “urgent police activity,” telling community members to avoid the area. Officials issued an “all-clear” alert at 8:02 a.m.
