  • Is there seriously no information at all on the homicide on 14th Street NW? There has been no useful information posted by MPD or Nadeau. What are the details, aside from a 29 year old man was shot multiple times and left for dead?

    • HaileUnlikely

      What do you want them to do, make something up? They have a reward out for information, which suggests to me that they don’t know who did it. Given that they don’t know who did it, and the decedent is…well…deceased, I can’t imagine they know what the motive was or anything either.

      • No, I certainly am not interested in them making up stories. If they know nothing, they don’t state that clearly. I live nearby and this is really unsettling so I’m just surprised at the lack of information on this is all. Questions running through my head include: any sense if it was a random robbery or a targeted attack – did it seem things were stolen from his person? Was it a robbery gone awry? Any information known would be helpful to the community. It’s just odd for there to be silence.
