“On September 23, 2015, at approximately 3:00 pm, Fifth District units responded to the 1600 block of Kramer Street, NE, in reference to the sounds of gunshots. Once on the scene, the units interviewed a subject who indicated that unknown person(s) had shot at him and he further advised that he was not injured. Later during the midnight tour on the same date, members of the Fifth District were able to locate two suspects believed to have been involved in the earlier shooting and place them under arrest. Additionally, the officers were able to recover one handgun in the south alley of the 1600 block of Benning Road, NE. This case is an excellent example of the Fifth District Crime Suppression Team and Patrol officers working hand-in-hand with the Fifth District Detectives’ Unit to make an arrest and get another dangerous weapon off the streets of our community.”
