From Mayor-elect Bowser around 12:30am:

“Thank you to those who joined me this evening in your neighborhood for a walk-thru.

Unfortunately, MPD is currently responding to multiple shots fired at a home in the 700 block of Varnum Street, NW. At this time, there are no injuries to report. MPD responded within minutes and is searching for a burgundy Ford Explorer.

During our walk-thru, I spoke with residents and Commander Manlapaz about additional resources. MPD is all over Ward 4.

Of course, I am continuing to monitor the situation and remain in contact with MPD.

If you were in the vicinity and saw anything, please contact MPD immediately.”

From the Forum:

“Dear Petworth,

The violence of the last few days is unacceptable – no resident should expect to live in fear in Washington, DC.

I am monitoring the situation closely and am in constant contact with Chief Lanier and Commander Manlapaz, who oversee the 4th District.

This evening, the Chief concluded the evening and committed to roll call in Ward 4, and additional foot patrols in the Ward– with a focus on well-known hot spots. Additional resources have been deployed since Christmas Eve and there are more to come.

Tonight, I will tour the Ward with the Commander to ensure deployment of resources.
On Monday, the Chief and her team will provide a full briefing to me from the MPD headquarters, where I will review their immediate action plan to stop violence before it starts.

As always, please be mindful of your surroundings and if you see something, say something.

Sincerely,

Mayor-elect Muriel Bowser

You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in DC.
