About 8 rounds were heard from our apartment near 16 and V last night.
I’m curious if other readers are questioning this/called it in and are aware of a response?”
On twitter Vashti also asked us around midnight:
“Hey U Street: does anybody know more about the shots that were heard fired tonight somewhere between 15 & New Hamp?”
“fireworks apparently…someone reports seeing them from her roof”

David Garber tracks down the answer: “We don’t shoot cannons regularly, but we’ve had a lot of retirement and flag ceremonies lately.” -Navy Yard”
