“Dear PoPville,

I am writing to give you info about the continued violence in my neighborhood that I never hear about on the news. Last night [Tuesday] around 10:30 pm I heard 4-5 shots fired across the street from the Riverside Apartments on 4th St. SW. 2 cop cars followed and were looking for bullets with their flash lights. This was same exact location that 2 other shootings occurred earlier in November. I have heard that the cops are underpaid and violence rates keep increasing but they keep it under wraps because they are trying to “revive the SW” with the Wharf project. It is getting ridiculous. I am starting to question my safety walking home from work. The first shots I heard were earlier in the month around 7pm, it was barely dark out. Please let me know if you or your followers have heard anything about this.

Returned home at 8:30 tonight [Wednesday]. Down the street was completely blocked off by crime scene tape, cops, and ambulances. Nothing on the news.”

On the MPD 1D Listserve a resident asked:

“Can you please provide an update on the gunshots fired last night [Tuesday] on the corner of 4th/ O Streets SW? ”

MPD responded:

“MPD units received a call for the sounds of gunshots in the area. Entire area was canvassed and could not locate any shell casings, property damage or injured persons. The area was re-canvassed earlier this morning [Wednesday] and again found nothing.”

Last night MPD also emailed:

“Tonight [Wednesday] at approximately 8pm, the First District received a call for the sound of gunshots in the 1400 block of Canal Street, SW. Further investigation led to an adult male suffering from a non-life threatening gunshot wound. If you have any information regarding this shooting please call 202-727-9099 or text 50411.”

From a press release:

“Mayor Vincent C. Gray released the following statement in response to today’s affirmative vote by the Council on the “District of Columbia Soccer Stadium Development Act of 2014” to move forward with a stadium for DC United at Buzzard Point:

“I am pleased the Council voted today to move my soccer stadium proposal forward; however, the funding mechanism the Chairman advanced in a separate bill is clearly unlawful. As the Office of Attorney General has opined, and the Chief Financial Officer has agreed, that bill is void.

“Later this week, I will transmit to the Council for approval a list of reprogrammings – developed with the Mayor-elect and certified by the Chief Financial Officer – that will lawfully finance the stadium and allow construction to move forward.”

and

“Mayor-Elect Muriel Bowser issued the following statement regarding the unanimous Council approval of the new D.C. soccer stadium deal:

“The future of a brand new soccer stadium took a big step towards becoming a reality today. I am thankful to my Council colleagues for stepping up to support a deal that treats all stakeholders fairly and promotes an open and transparent process for District taxpayers. De-linking the Reeves Center means more community input and a deal that will be made on the District’s terms. I am confident that together with Mayor Gray and Chairman Mendelson, we will be able to finance a facility that will create jobs, spur development, and provide quality housing for more residents for years to come.”
