  • I live on that block and was up late last night. I didn’t hear/see any out-of-the-ordinary police activity. I think this speaks to the normal volume of siren traffic on Florida more than to a lack of MPD response to this crime.

    Locking my doors extra tight tonight though.

    • I live on the block and was up late too. I didn’t hear anything either. But, to your point there’s always siren traffic on Florida. I think I hear one now…

  • Am I reading correctly that the carjacking came from within the vehicle? I wonder if this person was known to the driver or if it was an Uber or something…

    • “Am I reading correctly that the carjacking came from within the vehicle?” That’s how I’m reading it too, and I too was wondering if it was some kind of rideshare scenario — maybe not Uber, since the passenger’s information would be on file, but perhaps a more informal “jitney” kind of thing?

  • Also live on that block and was on the front porch about 20 minutes before this incident…didn’t see or hear anything either. Makes me pretty uncomfortable to have so many incidents happening nearby on H, and this one so close. We’ve been here for a decade and I haven’t really felt unsafe in a long time.
