Dear PoP – What’s Going on at 500 Block of Decatur?

View Larger Map

“Dear PoP,

I live near the corner of Kansas Ave NW and Decatur St NW and there is some interesting police activity tonight that began around 11am Sunday the 22nd. A police helicopter was circulating above my house with its spotlight shining near Decatur. Near the intersection of Kansas and Decatur there was an abandoned pick up truck with some frontal damage. The police taped off the entrance to Decatur with police cruisers posted on each side of Kansas Ave. Around midnight an officer has been on his loud speaker addressing residents in 515 Decatur St NW to come out and talk. He has been repeatably saying someone needs to come out or make a signal with the lights to make sure someone is ok in the house (also referring to some altercation). As of yet no one has answered.”

Many readers have written in about this incident. So far this is all I’ve received from MPD:

“4-D units along with units of Special operations Division are on the scene of a barricaded suspect in the 500 block of Decatur Street NW. The suspect is wanted for Assault with a dangerous weapon. No injuries are reported at this time.”
