“Dear PoP,

All of the 400 block of Massachusetts Ave NW was shut down until a few minutes ago. There are a dozen cop cars and police tape keeping bystanders back. Any idea what’s going on? Oh, and one of the very few times I’ve seen an MPD officer w/ an MP5 machine gun.”

“Update: the 400 and 500 blocks of Massachusetts Ave., NW are now back open to traffic.”

    I live in the Meridian and the front desk man claimed it was a case of domestic violence – seems odd to have 4 policemen in bullet proof vests walking through our lobby for that.

      to be fair – domestic violence cases are often the ones that turn tragic, and fast. just like a traffic stop – you don’t know what you’re walking into.
