From MPD on Saturday:

“MPD received a call for a sounds of gunshots in the 1400 block of Fairmont Street around 10pm. Responding units located 2 vehicles that had been struck, but no victims (a third vehicle was located today). While investigating the matter, with the assistance of a tip from the community, officers located a handgun inside of a vehicle in the area and seized it pending further identification of the vehicle’s owner. We are not certain that this is the weapon responsible for the gunshots, so we are continuing to investigate.

Additionally, we recovered handguns and made arrests last night in the 1400 block of Columbia Rd NW and the 1400 block of V Street NW. That makes a total of 3 weapons our officers recovered along the 14th Street corridor yesterday.

    I feel like this area is so quiet and nice…what a shame.

  • Maybe I missed where this was mentioned, but there were also shots fired at about 7pm Friday on Fairmont between 14th and University. About 6-8 shots it sounded like. So good to know there were three straight nights of shootings in my area. Sigh.
