Shooting in Petworth at 9:30pm Sunday Night – Daytime Shots Fired Saturday on H Street, NE

via google maps

Tim tweeted us just before 10pm Sunday night:

“Three shots fired on Crittenden in Petworth. @PoPville. Second time in six weeks we’ve had a shooting on this sleepy street. Too many guns.”

MPD tweeted:

“Shooting 2127hrs 1200 blk of Crittenden ST NW LOF 1 B/M 20-25 yrs old 5’2″ wearing a hooded sweatshirt”


And thanks to all who emailed about the shots fired on H Street, NE Saturday afternoon – though MPD only calls it “sound of gunshots” – report from MPD:

“On September 26, at approximately 4:27 PM, a call came out for sounds of gunshots at the intersection of 8th and H Street NE. The initial investigation revealed that a suspect was shooting at someone at the intersection. After a thorough canvass MPD members were able to locate the suspect and an arrest was made. There were no reports of property damage and no reports of injuries to anyone at that location.”

  • Glad there was an arrest for the the H Street NE shooting. Sounds like the same dumb ass scenario as the Shaw daytime intersection shooting that resulted in a dead bystander.

  • Crime is going to be my #1 issue when voting next election. Ward 4 is ridiculous.

      It’s pretty much every ward! It should be all of our number 1 issue!

      • That’s a great and noble idea. As a DC resident myself it is a huge issue for myself. But the issue is, from the Mayor down to the top COP, the rank and file have never had thei support, so we will never get the support from the coumminity. Unless something drastically changes by next election the topic will be “how do we fill a police department? And how do we get them to stay?” I myself, don’t plan to be around by then to watch them argue about it.
