Reader Reported Shootings/Shots Fired at 14th and R St, NW

View Larger Map

“Dear PoPville,

There were 4-6 shots fired sometime around 3:18 am this morning on the 1400 block of R St and Johnson Ave.

I am a resident of the block and heard the gunfire. I called it in and it looked as if there were some eyewitnesses outside, but since I only heard and did not see anything I stayed put inside. Anyway, units arrived around 3:22 and stayed for a while, but considering the shooting on 11/17, this seems like a new pattern of violence and crime on the block (one that already has a bad rap). Any additional information?”

I have put in an inquiry with MPD to see if they can share any info. Did anyone else hear/see anything?

Ed. Note: I believe MPD is close to making an arrest re: Thursday’s shooting at 14th and R St, NW and
MPD says they have “no record of any shooting at Petworth Metro” Saturday night.
