“Dear PoP,

I was wondering if you had any information on the shooting near Delafield Ok last night around 1am? I heard the shots from my apartment on Decatur St NW. My window was open and faces the alley toward Delafield and I heard 7 shots fired around 1am. The police were on scene in less than 2 min and burning rubber trying to find the guy. Then my roommate and I hit the floor when we heard something that sounded like tank artillery. The majority of the cops left by 1:40 but they are still patrolling.”

From MPD:

Around 1:30am, units received a call for a shooting in the 300 blk of Delafield Pl. NW. Upon arrival, an adult male was located suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. The male was transported to an area hospital and later pronounced dead. This case is being investigated by members of the Homicide Branch. Anyone with information is asked to call 1-888-919-CRIM(E).
