From the Brookland Listserv around 5:45pm:

“I think I just heard at least 10 gunshots coming from the Franklin St and/or RIA Ave area. Its sounded very close. I don’t think it was fireworks. Very scary. Anyone else hear it?”

One resident responded confirming they also heard it and an additional resident wrote:

My daughter and I had just rounded the corner of Franklin and 13th after going to the farmers market. We stopped on our porch because she had fallen asleep and minutes later we heard the shots on that corner–so close they had woken her up and she was crying. I grabbed her, abandoning our stroller and things, and went inside. I love our neighborhood but I have a hard time with the thought that she could have been killed by stray bullets on a nice afternoon walk.
