“Dear PoPville,

Kenyon between 13th and 14th was closed for a possible shooting around 4 pm yesterday, ironically the same time you posted about the recovered gun. The Harriet Tubman school was on lockdown, but haven’t heard anything else about it.”

MPD confirms to me shots were fired:

Located several casings and 2 vehicles struck. The only information that we have so far from the community was that they saw a dark vehicle speed away but unknown if that was a suspect or witness or possible target. Detectives were on scene searching for video and recovering forensics.”

Updates when/if more is known.

From MPD:

“Last night (Monday March 18), at approximately 8:15pm, patrol officers in the Third District observed two individuals in the 2900 block of 14th Street NW engaged in what appeared to be a narcotics transaction. As the officers approached the subjects, they fled on foot. Officers were able to apprehend one of the subjects, an adult male from SE Washington, after a short foot pursuit. During a search incident to his arrest, a 40 caliber handgun with an extended magazine was recovered from the suspect. (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

Councilmember Todd and I are leading an effort to obtain funding to open the swimming pool at Roosevelt High School for public use. If you are supportive of this effort, there are a few things you can do to help in the next few weeks, as the Council and the mayor determine budget priorities for 2020. The Department of General Services will need funding to construct a separate entrance for the public, and the Department of Parks and Recreation will need funding for staffing. DCPS would not be funding public access, and any public use would be secondary to student uses.

On April 4 and April 5, two relevant committees of the DC Council will be holding hearings about the budget. Details below.

If you want to help, here’s what you can do: (more…)
