A reader wrote around 6:30pm last night:
“The police blocked off the grassy area between the bus bay and 10th street, and areas are roped off with crime scene tape.”
“According to Metro Transit police, the boy was stabbed in the torso just before 5 p.m. on the sidewalk near the bus bay outside the station.”
The also report a 17 year old was arrested.

From GW Public Safety around 3:30am:
“MPD shots fired incident. Two suspects in custody
“At approximately 3:30 a.m., the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) notified the George Washington University Police Department (GWPD) of an attempted carjacking in progress off-campus and that officers were chasing a suspect in the direction of GW’s campus. While still off-campus, MPD officers in pursuit fired in the direction of the fleeing suspects. While this incident was unfolding, a resident student called to alert GWPD of a suspicious person hiding near Munson Hall, located at 2212 I Street. GWPD relayed this information to MPD and in turn captured the suspect.
There is continued police presence along the I Street corridor between the Foggy Bottom-GWU Metro station and 2000 Pennsylvania Avenue and along 23rd street while MPD finalizes its investigation. There may be some residual police activity that continues into the mid-morning.
Campus safety is a community responsibility, and we thank our community member for her awareness and actions, which led MPD to be able to make a quick arrest. Call GWPD at 202-994-6111 if you need assistance or notice anything unusual or suspicious.”
