shots fired cp

A reader reports around 3am:

“Shots were fired in apartment complex parking lot or Porter Street NW (behind the Quebec house apartments, in the rear parking lot, 2521ish Porter St, NW), then I saw the car hit another car and speed off eventually. Shots were fired on the crosswalk and two cars were in the parking lot. They think the driver was shot in one car that pulled in. When they tried to pull out they hit this car.”

MPD will be releasing more info later but can confirm “Arrests were made and guns recovered”.

Update from MPD:

“The Metropolitan Police Department’s First District announced that multiple suspects have been arrested following shots fired in the 2700 block of Porter Street, Northwest.

On Monday, August 29, 2016, at approximately 2:47 am, Second District officers responded to the 2700 block of Porter Street Northwest for the sounds of gunshots. Upon arrival, officers located several casings at the scene and obtained information regarding a vehicle that was observed fleeing the area. A short time later, an MPD unit from the First District observed a vehicle matching the lookout description traveling northbound in the 3rd Street Tunnel. A brief pursuit followed and when the vehicle stopped, three suspects exited and fled on foot. The suspects were quickly apprehended in the area of the 900 block of New York Avenue, Northwest.

One semi-automatic rifle and two semi-automatic pistols were recovered from the vehicle. Further investigation revealed the vehicle had stolen tags and an altered VIN number.

On Monday, August 29, 2016, First District officers arrested 26-year-old Calvin Donnell Alston of Bowie, MD, 21-year-old Deshawn Williams of Southeast, DC, and 24-year-old Brandon Rose, of Southeast, DC for several offenses including Possession of Unregistered Firearm and Unauthorized Use of a Vehicle.

During the shooting, a vehicle was struck by gunfire. No injuries were reported. The incident remains under investigation.”

Bindaas Menu (PDF)

Menu Description: Guests can anticipate savory snacks, kebabs, with vegetarian options as well as pork, fish, chicken and beef street food dishes that are easy on the wallet. Standout dishes include: Pathar Gosht, a lamb kebab cooked on a stone oven served over a bed of saffron rice with saffron and cashews, Uttapam, a fermented rice pancake with lentils and shrimp pepper; Bhel Puri, a Bombay seaside snack with raw mangoes, lentils, puffed rice which is sweet and savory, and a wrap, the Kati Roll with Goan Pork.

Wine List: Bindaas offers an international wine list with 60 wines by the bottle and 18 wines by the glass. A variety of Indian beers and whiskey selections will also be available, along with four signature cocktails and two mocktails reflecting the spirits and spices of India.

Capacity: 35 seats in the main dining room and nine seats at the bar. One can also book a reception in the upstairs dining room, which can accommodate up to 40 guests seated. A rooftop patio is also available from April to October (weather permitting), and can accommodate 20 guests seated.

Interior Design: James Beard Foundation’s award-nominated restaurant designer Martin Vahtra of Projects Design Associates of New York is the designer of record for Bindaas. The new interior incorporates new flooring, acoustical tiles, new furnishings and a new art installation mural of street food vendors along with graffiti one would find in India.

According to Martin Vahtra, Bindaas was created as a nod toward Indian street food and culture. The open kitchen has been transformed into a test kitchen for the chefs to create and delight customers with Indian everyday “delicacies” often unavailable in the US and cherished in Indian. Street food in particular does not always mean sitting down for a three-course meal but rather ordering many small dishes, a table full of food ideal for sharing. Casual dinners can be memorable especially when transported to a different country and culture. Food markets give one the smells, flavors and foods of a new place. They offer more authentic experiences than the tourist versions of local dishes in many restaurants. This is the intent of the open kitchen at Bindaas.

The first thing guests notice when they enter Bindaas is the “Indian silk teal” color on the exterior. It is designed with a warm and rich wood wall of rustic reclaimed beams, influenced by Indian screens and shutters. As one turns the corner, they are faced with a custom mural on the feature wall in the restaurant. This piece of art represents Indian graffiti and street life. Furthermore, the restaurant’s new fabrics and paint colors add a punch of jewel tone color to the space. To create soft mood lighting, new custom pendants are being added that are created from baskets, as a nod to the food markets of India. New bar top lights have been installed to create intimacy for the diner at the bar. The back bar has been redesigned with new display shelves to present an exciting layout and distinguish the new restaurant from its sister restaurant next door. The overall outcome is a new contemporary interior that evokes elements of Indian culture without being cliché.”
