14th Street Shooting 2

From MPD at 5:40pm:

“The Third District is currently investigating a shooting at 14th and Girard Street NW. Detectives are currently on scene. Anyone with information is asked to call 202-727-9099.”

A reader reported:

“I live on 14th and fairmont and I just heard several shots fired. Not exactly sure where they came from but they were coming closer to Girard/columbia/harvard. Lots of police activity. Scary because this is prime commuting time–lots of foot traffic and people out and about.”

Update: I’m told that two males were shot but are not being very cooperative. Updates when more is known.

“Dear PoPville,

Columbia Heights/Park View residents have been eagerly tracking the opening of The Hilltop forever and recently heard that they would be opening “June 1 at the absolute latest”.

So maybe it’s a good thing that their Facebook page is down–like part of a rebranding for when they open.

Secondly, do any readers know if business owners get a certain number of months free of rent when setting up a new restaurant? Six months? One year? Four years?”

The race to open among Hilltop, Slim’s, Swampoodle and Homestead continues…
