Thanks to a reader for sending the tip and the above photo:

“There was a 4 person shooting on the unit block of Bryant st NW today (Sunday) @ 200 pm approx. Lots of cameras and there were about 10 police cars. Apparently it was a family argument that went south.”

The Columbia Heights Listserv had a note as well:

“It seems that shots were fired in broad daylight at about 4:20pm on Sunday afternoon. I saw mothers with strollers running in away from what seemed to be 14th and Harvard. Police are currently swarming the area. If anyone has concrete information that can/should be made public, please let the community know.”

And DCist reported earlier a shooting on 14th and W:

“An adult man was shot at around 11:35 p.m. last night (Sat. night) in an incident police are preliminarily describing as “not a random attack.”

Not good news for an MPD “all hands” weekend.
