A reader sends in the unfortunate news:

“I just got home (2 am) to find the alley behind my house roped off with police tape and two cops standing at each end, and another half dozen cops under a mobile light at the intersection of the east-west and north south alleys in the 5300 block of 1st/2nd Sts. NW. I asked the cops at my end of the alley what had happened, and he said someone had been gunned down in the alley and was dead. He wouldn’t tell me anything more than that.”
