There was a little confusion yesterday as to what happened in the alley next to Shaw’s Tavern. MPD shares more info today:

“Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Major Crash Unit are investigating a hit and run, resulting in a fatality, which occurred in the 1800 block of 6th Street, NW.

Upon arrival on the scene, they discovered an unidentified adult male lying on the ground unconscious. DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services personnel responded to the scene and determined that the victim showed no signs consistent with life.
