Dear PoP – Police Presence in Shaw Yesterday Afternoon

“Dear PoP,

Any idea what all the cops were doing yesterday afternoon on 7th b/w P and O in front of the Community Center and then all around the neighboring blocks? I saw them while walking my pup and then later driving to whole foods the car in front of me and as a result my car as well was converged upon by cops who began looking through the car in front of me—trunk, wheel wells, etc. While waving me to pass by.”

Anyone know what happened? I wonder if it was in response to the recent shooting at 7th and N possibly?
