From MPD:

“Members of the Metropolitan Police Department are investigating the sounds of gunshots in the area of the 1300 block of 7th St. NW.”

“@PoPville gunshots & police cars at 8th & N around 5am this morning.”

  • Um, inevitable.

  • Walking home past the area on 4th of July a few weeks ago we also thought we heard a bullet hit something right above our heads in the same location, but didn’t see anything so assumed it was just fireworks. Feels like every two weeks almost there is something that happens almost exactly in that area.

  • It was way more than that and probably not random. Around noon today, I saw 3 cars with bullet holes in them as well as two piles of glass where car windows were either shot out or smashed along 8th just south of O.

  • Really amazed that this would be the first time this has happened. The crews are pretty tight this summer. For whatever reason they’re all a pretty trigger happy and moving in tight groups.

  • Wow. Full police response. They even dug the yellow tape out of the trunks of their cruisers. Meanwhile, a playground is shot up in broad daylight in front of 2-year olds and all the cops would commit to was “sounds of gunfire” (sounds which, apparently, produce shell casings and bulletholes).
    Hm. Go figure.

  • There is a large playground right across the street from this location.
