Starting with the quadruple shooting around 8pm at 110 Gallatin Street, NW unfortunately, many more reports of shootings followed.

Though first, perhaps due to crime and the heat, an even more disturbing tweet followed from @IAFF36 around 11pm:

“Unfortunately there are no ambulances available in the city, first responders will be there, Ambos dispatched as they become available ‪#dcfd”

Following are tweets from @IAFF36 regarding shootings that were reported:
