Busy night in Petworth. From Council Member Bowser:

“Neighbors- I regret to inform you that MPD is investigating multiple shots fired in the 700 Block of Shepherd St NW at approx 8:30 pm. No one was injured. There was damage to property. MPD will release details as they are available.”

UPDATE: MPD CMDR Brown writes in an email, “After investigating this last further last night, this gunfire was the result of a domestic situation between a girlfriend, her old and new boyfriend. We have a witness and hopefully that witness will provide the necessary information to close this case.”

And more detail regarding the Allison St. activity:

“Several shots were fired at a vehicle being occupied by a male subject in 700 Block of Sheperd ST NW at approx 8:30 pm who fled the area… this vehicle was observed by MPD who attempted to stop it in the 500 blk of Allison ST – at which time the driver bailed out — the passenger was interviewed who reported to MPD that they were shot at by a b/male, a former boyfriend… not a random act and not gang related.”
