I’ve been getting a lot of emails inquiring about shootings last night.

“Dear PoP,

There’s a pretty sizable police presence at Euclid and University (btw 14th and 15th) right now. They have taped off much of the block and there are three or four plain clothes detectives milling about.”

MPD and DCAlerts reported a shooting last night around 1:30am.

According to WJLA:

“Two people have been arrested in connection with a deadly shooting in Meridian Hill Park area in Northwest. D.C. police say a person was shot in the 2600 block of 15th Street, near a Howard University dorm, around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday. The victim died on the scene.”

There is not a lot info available at the moment but at some point a man was driven to the hospital this morning (presumably to treat a gun shot wound) and casings were found at 9th and Crittenden St, NW. Investigation is ongoing.
