DC Police, Fire Department Send 7-Year-Old Shooting Victim to Disney World


DC Fire and EMS and DC police are sending a seven-year-old shooting victim from Maryland to Disney World.

Reagan Grimes was shot in the chest and sustained life-threatening injuries in the 3500 block of Jay Street, Northeast DC, while she was riding her scooter in a courtyard during a visit with her family members on May 1.

“This young lady put a special place in our hearts. We are happy that she is able to be here with us today,” said a firefighter during the surprise announcement in a video posted online by DC Fire and EMS.

Engine 27 in Deanwood hosted a lunch for Grimes through a donation from Mission BBQ.

The second-grader received treatment for gunshot wounds in her lung at Children’s National Hospital for several days.

DC Fire had Reagan and her family as their guests, together with MPD officers at Engine 27, following her release from the hospital.

The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) is searching for a white car captured in a surveillance video as a vehicle of interest in the shooting of the little girl.

Anyone who has knowledge on the incident is asked to call MPD at (202) 727-9099 or submit their tips by texting at “50411.”
