I was hoping not to get an email like this – Shots Fired in the Snow

“Dear PoP,

Gun shots ring, are you listnin’

Another day in winter wonderland, and another firearms exchange near the Lincoln Westmoreland complex. Four shots rang out around 1:40 at the corner of 8th and Q at which point the suspect began to run north on 8th street towards LW and rattled off another 3 shots in that direction.

Police responded very quickly to calls, and they are driving around the surrounding blocks in a matter of minutes. Apparently there was an off duty officer at the 7-11 who ran out and pursued the suspect. I’m not sure if he was apprehended.

It’s amazing that this can be such a frequent occurrence, even during a record winter storm, within a 25 minute walk of the White House.”
