Ed. Note: The above photo was taken after this weekend’s shooting on Upshur Street. It really saddened me how beautiful the street looked. I was thinking how this photo should be a “sweet street scene” but now is affiliated with a crime post…
From Councilmember Muriel Bowser:
We are all appalled by this week’s violence. I will be convening a Special Meeting on Crime this Wednesday, October 28, 7pm at the ROC, 801 Shepherd St NW.
Chief Cathy Lanier and 4D command staff will address concerns and actions necessary to increase public safety.
The meeting will focus on:
– recent homicides in Petworth at Safeway and 1200 Bl Crittenden ST with updates on the investigations.
-Increased reports of sounds of gun fire
and MPD response
– Gang activity in 4D, and neighboring 3D and 2D.
-Petworth Metro station safety
Do not hesitate to reach me with any questions or concerns, 202-491-4842.
