Update: “East metro access closed due to a shooting, the glass at the bus stop on NH is shattered out. Security guard in my building reported shooting”

From MPD: “Alert: Shooting in the 3700 Block of New Hampshire Avenue, NW. Lookout for a possible white Ford Escape last seen southbound on 5th Street, NW.”

“Dear PoPville,

what happened on Georgia Ave by the metro at about 5:00 p.m.? I heard a loud sound and didn’t see anything, but they’ve now closed off the whole street from Quincy to New Hampshire and there are police cars, firetrucks, and ambulances. Paramedics just wheeled a teenager out from the Dunkin Donuts on a stretcher.”

Mathew writes: “Georgia Ave/Petworth Metro east entrance is closed. Heavy police/EMS presence. Looks like Georgia Ave is closed. Someone being loaded onto a stretcher now.” Read More
