View Larger Map

“Dear PoP,

Have you heard about the shooting in this area of Brightwood last night? From what I’ve heard, a young man was shot in the head and killed right on the street. Have only seen one email from the MPD regarding this incident but a lot of residents are really upset. Complaints about this block and the gang/crew that hangs out on it have been many, but little has been done.”

I also only saw a few emails from MPD:

Nov. 29, 1:08am
“4d units are on the scene of a shooting in the 600 block of Longfellow Street, NW. An adult male was shot and transported to a local hospital. If anyone has information concerning this incident, please call 202-727-9099 or 1-888-919-CRIMe.”

“The detectives are still interviewing witnesses and the motive for the shooting is unclear at this time. The victim is in grave condition at a local hospital.”

Nov 29, 9:34 PM
“We have received confirmation that the victim of the shooting has succumbed as a result of his injuries.”
