View Larger Map

“Dear PoP,

I came home tonight (Saturday) to police cars and tape everywhere, and a police officer in an unmarked car on 17th St. Told me there was a shooting on the adjacent block on T St. NW. He said everyone is still alive. I don’t know if it’s random or robbery related or what — it’s sad regardless.”

Here’s the word from MPD:

“Synopsis-ADW Gun- 1746 T Street NW-

At 2330 hours a call was dispatched for a shooting in the 1700 block of T Street NW. When MPD units arrived they discovered a Taxi Cab doubled parked in front of 1704 T Street NW. Investigation revealed that the driver of the taxi was suffering from an apparent gunshot wound to the jaw area. The victim was conscious but very disoriented and was unable to communicate how he received his injuries. At the time of this writing, the crime is still being investigated and it is unclear whether this was a robbery gone bad or there was another motive.
As a result of the incident, the entire block of the 1700 block of T Street NW was cordoned off, no vehicle or foot traffic was allowed in the block. The Fire Board was summoned and responded. Fire Board members preliminary assessed the wound and determined that it appeared to be caused by a gunshot. The victim was transported to an area hospital by ambulance and a MPD escort was provided.”
