Props go out to MPD for a gun recovery:

“This evening (Wed.) around 9:30 pm the Third District Robbery Tac Unit observed an armed gunman in the 1400 block of Fairmont St., NW.

After a brief foot pursuit the officers apprehended the gunman and recovered was a high powered weapon with several rounds of ammunition.”

Sadly there was also a homicide a few blocks away. From CM Jim Graham:

“Last night a domestic confrontation tragically led to a death within an apartment at Columbia Heights Village on the 2800 block of 14th St. It was a fight between two adult males reportedly within the apt. No gunshots were fired, and I am told no firearms were involved. MPD is not prepared at this moment to release the cause of death. The incident is now under active investigation.”
