Ed. Note: Checking the @DCPoliceDept twitter feed [1D shooting_0347hrs_1100 1st Place NW/100 Pierce Street NW_No lookout at this time] also had 1st place but included 100 Pierce Street NW as well so I’ve fixed the map. Thanks to those who noted the mistake.

From MPD:

  • Dude that was shot was released? Should hold him for questioning.

  • Is it me, or is this summer ramping up to be a particularly violent one? I know there is always an uptick of crime in the summer months, but the number of reported shootings and armed robberies is quite staggering for it to be this early in the season. Stay safe everyone!

  • I guess I was sleeping really well last night since this is basically in front of my house and I heard nothing. I don’t even think the dog woke up.

  • Brightwood-Petworth is crazy shoot’y this year. This area is averaging 3 shootings per week over the last month.

    Thank goodness they’ve all been late at night, but it’s only a matter of time before there’s a shootout in broad daylight.

      the map is wrong. 1100 1st place ain’t nowhere near Petworth/Brightwood

      • That map is right….zoom in.

        • The map is right, but I’d call that Manor Park rather than Brightwood or Petworth.

          • This is all sorts of wrong. The shooting either happened in the 1100 block of 1st Ter NW (Just north of K between 1st and North Capitol). Or the map is right and it happened in the 5600 block of 1st Pl NW. I’m guessing it’s the former.

        • Yeah, but that map doesn’t indicate the 1100 block of any street. Either the map’s wrong or the block number in the post is wrong.

          • Wow, I need to work on my reading comprehension. The 1100 block of 1st place would actually be in the midst of the Sursum Corda development. If the shooting took place there, then that explains why neither stubsdc nor his dog heard anything on 1st Pl in Manor Park.

        • There’s a 1st Place NW between L and M streets – that seems more plausible than what the map above shows.

  • At this pace DC will catch up to last year. It was about 20% down on murders through May. Not much longer it appears.

  • Terrible news about another shooting.

    And just to be “that guy” … I noticed this post is tagged Ft. Totten. It’s totally not Fort Totten. At all. I’m not sure what it is… Brightwood or Manor Park or Something Else Entirely, but definitely not Fort Totten. Just sayin’

  • Just a few blocks down from my new place, how lovely. :<

    • Don’t let it get you down. We’ve lived on Longfellow since 2008 and have had a handful of crazy experiences, but it is such an awesome neighborhood and great people for the most part.

      • Aw, thanks for the reassurance. :) It looks so lovely here and I’ve met so many fantastic people. Just trust crime stats to get you down.
        (though it looks like it wasn’t on our street after all! Not yay, because poor guys, but at least there’s that.)

        • Welcome to the neighborhood! My wife and I have been here since 2010, and well improving very quickly, there are still some bad characters running around causing problems. The houses are turning over quickly though, so things are changing!

      • Just moved to Petworth/Brightwood and I’m curious what kind of crazy experiences you’ve had (assuming that’s where you’re talking about?)

  • Prince Of Petworth

    Checking the @DCPoliceDept twitter feed also had 1st place but included 100 Pierce Street NW as well so I’ve fixed the map. Thanks to those who noted the mistake. I’ve also emailed MPD to confirm.
