  • Any updates since last night on the 8th and H NE shooting? We should all pitch in for a Robocop to patrol this corner/bus stop.

  • Found this on Frozen Tropics:

    The Washington Post, and NBC 4 are both reporting a shooting at 8th & H. There was also a police alert regarding a shooting in Rosedale. A resident emailed me saying that there was really just one shooting, and what happened was that the shooting occurred in Rosedale, and the victim was found at 8th & H (this might explain the quick clean up at 8th & H).

      Unless they used silencers, there is no way someone was shot on 8th & H last night, I definitely would have heard that. The story of finding a victim who was shot elsewhere makes *way* more sense. Frozen Tropics also mentions that someone went down to the scene and none of the hallmarks of a shooting scene were there (detectives looking for shell casings, markings where casings fell, or any sustained police presence at all).

  • Yep, lots of trouble-making riff-raff on that corner.

    This seems awful early in the evening for the typical shootings. They seem to occur more around 1-3AM.
