From MPD around 3:30pm Sat. afternoon:

“Minutes ago, officers were summoned to the 17th and Corcoran Street area for sounds of gunshots. Upon their arrival, they found an adult male suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. We are still investigating the incident and anyone with information related to this event is encouraged to call (202) 727 9099.”

Another readers sends word of a man found dead Sat. morning in an alley by 17th and P St, NW:

“A middle aged man in wait staff clothing (black collared shirt, black slacks, black socks/shoes) was found dead in an alley in Dupont Circle. The alley runs from 17th to 18th and is located between P and Church. Police arrived around 10:15am – regular cops, secret service (i’m guessing bc of nearby Iraqi embassy), OCME, CSIB. Haven’t seen anything in the news yet. My neighbors walked through the alley at 9:15am and didn’t see anything. First things that jumped to mind were the washington club and the Iraqi embassy – both a block away, both have traditional wait staff.”
