    wtf? We live two blocks from here, and normally a very good police presence at the metro and the 711 at 7th and RI. A guy with a ski mask and a gun doing carjackings?!

    • Not sure what is so surprising. There is an open air drug market right up the street. Not saying that its connected but really no area is really immune to this.

        I’m quite aware of the open air drug market. This is a surprising crime, as normally people selling drugs causes other violence (shootings etc) not completely unrelated car jackings. Yes, I am surprised, because despite the violence you see in DC, armed carjackings are not the norm, and definitely not in this block, within eye sight of two places where police are very common.

  • Right outside the $7,500 2bdr/2bath apartment!

  • B*****stan is reporting this was a false report, and no carjacking occurred.
