“The shooting took place in the unit block of T Street NE. The man then ran into the Harmony Public Charter school.”
Update from MPD:
“On today’s date at approximately 0830 a man drove to the unit block of 62 Todd Street NE and dropped his girlfriend and child off at Elementary School. As the girlfriend and child entered the school the man waited in his vehicle. While waiting for her return a gold colored Lexus approached and as the Lexus slowed the driver lowered his window and fired several gun shots. The man ran into the school and waited for the arrival of MPD and DCFEMS. The man suffered from a single gunshot wound that to his arm and slight bullet graze to his stomach. The victim was conscious as he was transported to local area hospital for treatment. At this point the incident is believed to be domestic in nature the description stands for a black male with a beard driving a gold color Lexus.
The school has remained open and no one additional suffered injury.”
And MPD reports on a homicide last night:

At approximately 9:30 pm, members of the Second District responded to the listed location for a Destruction of Property call.

Any intel on a large building at 4th and T NE right on the MBT trail? The building is fenced off and it looks like they are beginning some kind of renovation. I think it’s an old “Sanitary Grocery” building and has appeared to be empty for a number of years.
It’s just north of where the new Pepco park will be.”

I’m writing to let the PoPville community know of an assault that happened to me at approximately 6:45am this morning [Thursday] as I was getting into my car to head to work. A man was sitting on the sidewalk near my car mumbling incoherently. While unlocking my car door he approached me from behind and threw a rock at me, striking my elbow. He ran away quickly while I jumped into my car. Luckily the rock missed my head and I only have a swollen arm to deal with. He did not try to snatch my purse.
I filed a police report and they are on the hunt for him during their normal patrol of the neighborhood. He is a black male, approx 5’6″, 140 lbs, age 30-35. He was wearing a white t-shirt and dark pants. He ran down 2nd St NE towards McKinley Tech High School. I believe he probably ducked into the alley parallel to T St. or T St.

“Eckington last night: Car turning left crashed into cop driving the WRONG WAY down RI Ave with siren off. A few witnesses, but more would be good. Cop apparently trying to blame the driver of other car (who was driving the right way!)”
Another reader reports:
“FYI – crazy trees down in Eckington on Quincy – looks like it has been cleared.
Also – probably unrelated, but we have a power outage on R street NE from the second half of First to at least Eckington Pl.”
