WASHINGTON -- A drive-by shooting early Monday morning in Washington, D.C., injured at least 11 people. None of the victims' injuries are life-threatening, a Washington Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman said Monday. The department is investigating whether a 12th person was hurt when two cars sped by a street corner in an up-and-coming part of the city, opening fire on a crowd gathered outside a building. Police have not yet released any information on the shooters' potential motives.

Re "Gunman Opens Fire in Capitol, Kills 2 Officers, Wounds Tourist," July 25: Newt Gingrich spoke about the killings in the Republican weekly radio address. "Please help those who are troubled learn to live peacefully with their problems," said the speaker, a tear running down his right cheek. His statement seems incredibly naive. The paranoid psychotic is not about to "learn" anything. He has very little control over his thinking and actions. Keep in mind also that many of the mentally ill are hard-core drug addicts who are in chains to their habit.

A flurry of shootings overnight, including three killings, accelerated demands Wednesday for tougher action to stem rising violence in the nation's capital. "No mayor anywhere could be more unhappy about this situation than me," said Mayor Marion Barry. "If I had the solutions for these killings at my fingertips, I'd stop them. It's frightening, it's sad, that we've come to this point." Paramedics responded to 14 reports of shootings Tuesday, 11 of them between 6:30 p.m.

This time, it was the Washington Huskies, making 60% of their shots and sinking 17 of 18 free throws Thursday night to defeat UCLA, 81-67, before 3,788 in Edmundson Pavilion.

USC coach George Raveling revealed ruefully Thursday night that his team will open against North Carolina next season. So that prompted the tongue-in-cheek question, "did your Trojans sound a warning to the Tar Heels tonight?" That was the the way the questioning went in the loose USC dressing room. And why not? USC had just blown out Washington State, 66-37, at the Sports Arena. The Trojans are unaccustomed to such comfortable winning margins and they relished it.

FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III said Friday that the agency has begun a preliminary assessment of its investigation into the Washington-area sniper shootings and already believes some of its operations need improvement. Mueller stopped well short of saying he was satisfied with how quickly police were able to solve the killings that gripped the nation during October.
