I got two separate tips from readers that I’m guessing are related. First a reader writes:
“I was on the 70 bus on my way home and there was one cop on the scene and an older black man was sprawled out on the side of the road [Ed. Note: Georgia Ave but no side street was given] in front of a grocery/liquor store (I was looking at the man). FYI. I’m sure there will be a police report soon.”
I have not seen an MPD report yet. Another reader writes to my PoPville twitter feed:
“strange black helicopter circling around Georgia and Irving for the past 15 minutes. (Pretty sure it’s real, too…)”
The “Pretty sure it’s real, too…” part cracked me up. But obviously something very serious happened. The incidents took place around 6:30pm Wed. evening. I’ll update as more info becomes available.
