I got two very similar sounding emails. First from the Lamont & Georgia Area:

“In the last 30 minutes – multiple volleys, 60+ initial shots. Major police / fire / ambulance response.”

Second from the Warder and Newton Area:

“Around 9:45pm this evening, I heard a number of what sounded to be gunshots (I have a hard time telling… there were fireworks going off in the neighborhood as well tonight). It sounded pretty intense, with some squealing tires following and tons of emergency services sirens shortly thereafter. I also heard some my neighbors’ kids outside screaming, “Someone got shot!” Perhaps you can verify and/or shed some light?”

I haven’t seen any police reports but will update as soon as I do. Did anyone else hear/see this incident?

UPDATE:

“There is now a police or news helicopter circling the area. My neighbor indicated that a black SUV right outside our building at the 3500 block of Warder has 3 bullet holes in it and that the gunfight initially began on Quebec Place, NW. Likely related is an overturned car near Georgia Ave. ”

This has just been a brutal day…
