Dear PoPville – Anyone Else See the Drive By shooting on Rhode Island Ave, NE Last Night?

View Larger Map

Dear PoPville,

I was driving home from work on Rhode Island Ave, near 2nd St NE, around 9:00pm and stopped at a red light. When the light turned green I saw the guy in the car in the lane next to me lean out his window and fire four shots (+/-) into the car behind me. The shooter went by me and drove off. I called the cops and gave as much info as I could, but I wonder if there are any alerts or others that saw it. I have no idea what happened to the person behind me, but hopefully they weren’t killed. I noticed the shooter driving oddly, but definitely didn’t expect that. I wish I got a better look at him and his license plate, but maybe someone else did.
