Shooting around 1st and N St, NW Last Night

View Larger Map

“Dear PoPville,

I live on Morgan St in NW, and last night my roommates and I heard eight to ten gun shots in rapid succession. About 10-15 minutes later a chopper was overhead shining a spotlight in our yard and through the streets. Have you received any information on this shooting incident that occurred around 10:30 p.m. on 1st and N NW?”

@DCPoliceDept tweeted:

“5D Shooting / NY Ave & N St NW. No lookout given.”

And a PoPville follower tweeted:

“police cars on nj and police tape and cars blocking off n street between nj and at least 1st nw. Doesn’t look good.”

But I haven’t seen any other reports. Anyone else hear anything?
