    I went for a run Saturday and got to Belmont street, there were cops blocking the road but I walked through…did not realize someone died. There was a white moving truck that was stopped and the cops were talking with the driver. Would like more details. That is such a nice street (amazing row houses), how does this happen?

    • The white truck was actually stopped on Kalorama, and was there for at least an hour and surrounded by a very heavy police presence. Not sure what was going on. Such a sad/strange thing to happen in the middle of the day on a Saturday…

  • Who said someone died? As of this time there is no death associated with this shooting.

  • I live in the middle/end of this block and had to show ID to be escorted to my front door when I got home at 4:30. Would like to know what happened.

  • Was looking for information on twitter and found this. Guessing it’s this shooting despite the error in address (Belmont St and Belmont Rd are not the same).

    FATAL SHOOTING, SUSPECTED HOMICIDE, 1830 Belmont St NW. Man w/gunshot wound to head on 2nd floor.

  • Update? Anybody?

  • From Cmdr Carroll of the 3rd District:
    Good Afternoon,
    The investigation into this death is now being handled by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. They can be contacted at 202 698-9000 for additional information.

    Late Saturday I heard it was a suicide and this response from MPD would fit with that since they don’t typically report on suicides.

  • It was a suicide. Very sad. Boyfriend killed himself after his girlfriend broke up with him.
