Shooting, Murder in Adams Morgan Last Night

“Dear PoP,

What do you know about a shooting last night in Adams Morgan at Euclid and Mozart. I live at the Dorchester, and due to renovations in the lobby have been using the Euclid entrance. Saw the crime scene tape. A little unnerving to say the least.”

Sadly there was a homicide. MPD released the following:

“On August 11, 2010, at approximately 9:11 PM, a male victim was shot in the 2500 block of Mozart Place, N.W. The victim succumbed to his injuries and was later pronounced dead. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Metropolitan Police Department at 202-727-9099.”

Unfortunately this is the second homicide this section of Adams Morgan has seen this summer. A few weeks ago we learned that an arrest had been made in the previous homicide at 17th and Euclid St, NW from June.
