  • I heard what I thought were either two shots or fireworks at 9:30 in Adams Morgan last night.

    • Coming from the California Av/Columbia Rd direction, on the west end of AdMo toward the Hilton? I remember looking up from my book and actually saying out loud “that was a gunshot.”

  • 13th Street between Florida and W was closed off at 7:15 pm and according to the MPD twitter feed there was a shooting at 6:30 pm already.
