This house has been tagged as a blighted property off and on for the past few years resulting in a ~$30K tax bill that has been paid every year even though no one has lived here since at least 2003.

Thanks to all who emailed the new signage above El Sol, formerly El Sauce next to the Capital Market grocery store. We’ve been waiting since 2014 for Phonation to open their brick and mortar. Their facebook still has “Tentative opening date is February 2015…” but should be any day now! Stay tuned for an exact opening date.

“Earlier this afternoon, members of the Third District responded to the area of 7th and O Streets NW in reference to the sounds of gunshots. Arriving units observed a vehicle fleeing the area. The vehicle fled toward the area of NJ and O Street NW, where the occupants exited the vehicle and fled on foot. No victims were located, but there were some vehicles struck by the gunfire. As a result of the investigation, we recovered three handguns and arrested an adult male in this incident. The investigation is continuing to identify any others involved.
In addition, we are working to determine if this incident has any relation to the shooting earlier today at 8th and R Streets NW.
