Thanks to all who sent updates last night and this morning. Further updates when the full MPD report is released.

Full update from MPD:

“Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s (MPD) Internal Affairs Bureau are investigating an officer-involved shooting that occurred in the 1200 block of Holbrook Street, Northeast, on Thursday, February 23, 2017.

At approximately 10:42 pm, members of the Fifth District Crime Suppression Team were in the area responding to previous sounds of gunshots when they attempted to stop a subject. The subject attempted to flee and ignored multiple commands from the officers to stop. A struggle ensued and there was an exchange of gunfire.

DC Fire and EMS transported the suspect to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The suspect has been identified as 47-year-old Timothy Lionel Williams, of no fixed address.

Two MPD officers sustained non-life-threatening gunshot wounds and were transported to a local hospital in stable condition. One of the officers has currently been released from the hospital, and both are expected to make a successful recovery.

The suspect’s gun was recovered on scene and is pictured below.


No other individuals were injured during this incident. The officers involved were placed on administrative leave, pursuant to MPD policy.

The officers had activated their Body Worn Cameras, and that footage is currently under review.

This case remains under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact police at (202) 727-9099.”

Got a fun one today that I can’t wait to read the responses! Simply when and where did your family come from and around what year did they immigrate to the States? For me both sides come from Russia and Poland. Some came in the 1880s and some came just before World War One, all settled in New York City. What about you guys? The more details/family lore the better!

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 2 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.
