Dear PoP – Other Crime in NE DC last night?


“Dear PoP,

I live at 6th and L NE and yesterday beginning at around 4:30pm, ambulance and cop cars kept speeding down my street headed west. When my roommates got home around 6, my street was totally backed up with traffic apparently because they were re-routing everything from 8th Street NE. When i returned from the grocery store around 7 pm, there were cop cars on L and 7th and on L blocking 8th Street. I saw the news report on the shooting in Trinidad, but that seems to have only happened around 8:30 which doesn’t seem to fit the timeframe for whatever was happening down by me earlier in the afternoon. Any ideas?”

Hmm, I hadn’t heard beyond the Trinidad shooting. Anyone know what happened yesterday?
