Multiple Guns Seized on the 700 block of Fairmont Street, NW


From MPD:

“On Today’s date [Sat, Feb. 1], at approximately 15:15 hours members of your Third District VICE Unit along with the Districts Detectives arrested a subject in the 700 block of Fairmont Street , NW who was wanted in connection with a recent 3D “Armed Robbery”. The subject was taken into custody without incident and was found to be carrying a firearm at the time of his arrest.

A Search Warrant was subsequently conducted on a residence for which the defendant was connected, within the same area. This warrant yielded the recovery of several additional weapons and other critical evidence.

It should be noted: this apprehension was attained thorough the hard work of the 3rd District Detectives who worked this case, as well as assistance gained from the public. For that, we at the MPD are thankful.”


“At approximately 2:00 AM. Third District officers confronted a suspect who had assaulted a female victim in the 700 block of Fairmont Street, Northwest

During the confrontation with the officers, the suspect displayed a handgun and pointed it at the officers.

The officers quickly grabbed the suspect and disarmed him.

As a result of the quick action of the officers the suspect was taken in to custody and the handgun was recovered.

This is the 5th handgun and 3rd BB gun that your officers recovered over the past 2 days!”

  • Great work, MPD! Thank you!

  • Finally MPD is taking action to address the gun toting thugs in that area. About freakin’ time! Do more, please, do more. We’d really like to be able to walk our neighborhoods at night without fear of criminals with guns.

    Pointed a gun at police officers, and isn’t dead? Can this guy buy lottery tickets for me?

    • +100. I couldn’t believe this when I read it. We don’t know all the details, but sounds like they would have been justified in shooting him on the spot.

  • Glad to see MPD being aggressive. We don’t see enough headlines like this. I hope they can go after the same thugs in CoHi and Petworth. The cops know where these people live and the exact areas where they operate and shoot their guns. Be aggressive and get these criminals out of our city!

  • Conveniently located next to a $1500 English basement rental that was on this site last week!

  • You have the Rank and File police to thank for this, not the brass. Your mayor and your police chief reward this hard work with only 4% raise after 6 years of nothing. This city government won’t back your police officers, will you?
