A reader sends the photo above around 7:30pm Sunday and writes:

“Heard 7 shots a block away from my house an hour ago. This is the crime scene at 7th and N. Saw 7 pieces of police tape on the ground – probably marking the bullet casings. They just wheeled an older man out on a stretcher and into the ambulance.”

On the Mt. Vernon Square Listserv a resident wrote about a different incident around 2:30pm:

“Anyone know anything about the shooting this afternoon north of N St. On 5th? I heard what sounded like semi-automatic fire, or lots of handgun rounds. Police have it taped off at 5th and evidence markers everywhere.”
