Thanks to all who sent emails about this terrible incident.
“I live on the 500 block of M street NW and saw fire trucks and EMS vehicles all along my street yesterday in the late afternoon-early evening. There seemed to be a lot of activity, and pretty much across the street from my row house. I am hearing from some others in the neighborhood that there was an argument by the basketball courts that lead to the shooting, and the victim ran over to M street where he ultimately collapsed and died.”

“You probably have seen the reports of this shooting yesterday evening (around 7:30pm) near Dunbar. Lets not overlook that this occured at a playground with kids and teens all around. I even remarked to my wife on how many people were at the park a few minutes before this event. Once the shoots were fired everyone scattered, and the news reports all read no different than a 2am ally shooting! I just wanted to share.”
