“Dear PoP,

I live in Truxton Circle. Last night at about 10pm my room mates and I heard about 4-5 gun shots coming from outside about 3 houses down. This house ALWAYS has issues, there were about 10 police officers there 3 weeks ago due to children being around drugs and probably much more. Anyways, last night we heard the gunshots and then heard someone running through the alley by our house. Two of us looked out the window and saw someone in a hoodie and jeans running past our house. An ambulance was there in about 5 minutes of the shooting and an older gentleman was put in and taken away. We then saw police at the end of the street, not sure if they caught the guy, but it was a little nervewracking. Just wanted people to be aware!”

Yikes. There was also a terrible shooting in SE in which 4 were killed and 5 injured. I think a PoPville twitter follower summed it up best after I linked to a story about a hit and run in Georgetown – she said, “DC’s a f****** mess tonight”.

Sadly, I couldn’t agree more.
