Gun shots ring, are you listnin’
Another day in winter wonderland, and another firearms exchange near the Lincoln Westmoreland complex. Four shots rang out around 1:40 at the corner of 8th and Q at which point the suspect began to run north on 8th street towards LW and rattled off another 3 shots in that direction.
Police responded very quickly to calls, and they are driving around the surrounding blocks in a matter of minutes. Apparently there was an off duty officer at the 7-11 who ran out and pursued the suspect. I’m not sure if he was apprehended.
It’s amazing that this can be such a frequent occurrence, even during a record winter storm, within a 25 minute walk of the White House.”
