“Dear PoP,

Walking home on Columbia road Sat. night near 17th there was a large area of police tape and what appeared to be markers of where there were shell casings. There were a bunch of police cars as well. This was at 4:00 AM.”

Yikes. Any Adams Morgan residents have the scoop on what happened?

UPDATE Just got word from MPD:

“At approximately 2:30 am, this morning at Columbia Road and Euclid Street Northwest, two suspects shot at two victims after a verbal dispute. There were no injuries.

One of the suspects was arrested by the officers working in Adams Morgan; however, the second suspect has not been apprehended at this time.

Two handguns were recovered.

The Third District Detective’s Office is currently investigating the matter.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Metropolitan Police Department on 202-727-9099.”
