From the Washington Post:

“A pregnant woman biking home from work was stabbed Tuesday afternoon near Congressional Cemetery in Southeast Washington.

The victim said she does not know what the man’s intentions were — perhaps he was trying to steal her backpack, she said…. and just moved to the District from Hawaii about a month ago.”

Shooting on Tuckerman Street, NW, Yesterday [Tuesday] 5 pm?

I am currently out of town and my pet- and house-sitter reported that there was a shoot-out yesterday in the 600 block of Tuckerman Street, NW, last night. I looked at listserv messages but didn’t see anything to this effect (not sure if I missed it). Could MPD please provide more info about this?!”

MPD confirms:

“A witness reported that two subjects were shooting at each other, no injuries were reported. Both subjects fled the scene and have not been identified. They are described as:

1. Black male, wearing a gray hoodie and jeans armed with a black handgun
2. Black male , wearing a purple shirt and unknown color shorts

If anyone has any information regarding this incident, please call the MPD CIC at 202-727-9099 or text at 50411.”

A reader reports:

“Today at 6:30 walking into Harris Teeter on Potomac Ave & Pennsylvania SE, a few cops run by & grab this woman wearing a red mask who was being held by (I believe) the security guard. She put up a fight. Sounds like (from other patrons) she had been running around the store, I don’t know if she was causing damage or stealing or anything.

Right now (7:00) there are 10 cop cars & an ambulance on Pennsylvania at the bus stop half a block away from Harris Teeter. Not sure what’s happening or if these are even related incidents. Guess things go a little crazy when it’s hot outside.”

From DPW:

“The public is invited to attend a free, citywide “Truck Touch” Saturday, June 6, 2015, from 8 am to 1 pm at RFK Stadium, Lot 7. A host of DC government agencies will present and demonstrate nearly 30 vehicles used to clean and repair streets, change traffic lights, collect refuse, clear snow, provide emergency services, administer mobile health care, and more.

This is the city’s eighth Truck Touch, which is coordinated annually by the DC Department of Public Works. Its popularity throughout the Washington metropolitan area over the years has led visitor attendance to grow from several hundred to several thousand. Last year, more than 3,000 residents came out to climb on packer, sweeper and boom trucks; sit atop MPD’s Mounted Unit’s police horse and maneuver the levers of a police chopper; ride Segways, and test drive electric sedan vehicles. Residents also learned how potholes are repaired, sewers are vacuumed, and received information about vital city services.

DC’s Citywide Truck Touch features vehicles from the District departments of Public Works, Transportation, Health, Employment Services, Parks and Recreation, Fire and Emergency Medical Services, Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency, the Metropolitan Police Department, and the DC Water and Sewer Authority. Other agencies will also be available to provide direct services and disseminate information about other DC government agencies.”
