In what is becoming a horrible theme, I’ve again woken up to emails about a disturbing Friday evening crime incident. The Washington Post reports:

“At least four people were injured and three arrested late Friday night after a brawl in the Metro system involving as many as 70 people, a Metro spokeswoman said.

The brawl apparently began about 11 p.m. at the Gallery Place station and then continued in the L’Enfant Plaza station, according to Metro spokeswoman Cathy Asato.

She said two persons under 18 were arrested along with one adult.”

DCFireems twitter feed had indicated a shooting at the Anacostia metro but later retracted it saying:

“Update – Anacostia Metro – NOT a shooting, however related to L’Enfant Plz incident”. Though it appears there was also an incident of some sort at the Anacostia Metro station.

For those following @dcfireems on twitter this has to be one of their more disturbing tweets from last night,

“Update – L’Enfant Plaza Metro SW – EMS treating at least 7 patients – Mass Casualty Task Force requested”
