“Agents from the Force Investigation Team of the Metropolitan Police Department’s (MPD) Internal Affairs Bureau are investigating an MPD officer involved shooting that occurred on Friday, October 22, 2021, in the 500 block of Kennedy Street, Northwest.
At approximately 4:45 pm, uniformed members of the Fourth District were flagged down in reference to a male suspect with a handgun chasing another male at the listed location. Responding officers located the suspect and as the officers engaged the suspect, one of the officers felt a handgun that was concealed in the suspect’s waistband. A struggle ensued and the suspect was able to flee from the officers. The suspect entered a vehicle and as officers attempted to remove the suspect from the vehicle, the suspect started driving the vehicle with one of the officers still inside of the vehicle. As the vehicle started driving away, two officers outside of the vehicle were thrown to the ground.
The suspect then drove approximately two city blocks with the third officer inside of the vehicle. The officer voiced numerous commands for the suspect to stop the vehicle and the suspect did not comply. The officer discharged his service weapon, striking the suspect. The officer exited the moving vehicle and fell into the roadway. The suspect then fled the scene in the vehicle. Read More

I’m no structural engineer, but either DCRA is totally incompetent, or somebody was slipped a few C-notes to look the other way (I acknowledge it could be a combination of both). DCRA has approved this structure, which is the primary support for the entire front porch and front of the renovated house. They obviously poured the footers wrong, so the contractor simply set the post down with over 50% resting on nothing but air and has no intention of fixing it. They somehow passed the inspection and are in the process of closing it up. Read More
