From MPD:

“At approximately 0200 hours a call was received in reference to a robbery while armed (gun) in the 1900 block of 9th Street, NW. Units responded quickly to the area and were able to apprehend two suspects. One of the suspects had discarded a handgun, which was recovered by an officer in the parking lot at the corner of 8th and U Streets, NW.

The complainants were located in the the 900 Block of T Street, NW, and after a positive identification was made, two suspects were arrested. Also recovered at the corner of 8th and T Street, NW, was a vehicle which is believed to have been used by the suspects.

The investigation is on-going and anyone with additional information is asked to call (202) 727-9099.”

    This is the kind of thing I like to read… “called and the cops responded quickly” instead of “the suspect was apprehended when the cops happened to be driving by at the time”.

    Do we know if the suspects were adults or kids?
