From MPD:

On Saturday evening, at about 9:40 PM, two 1D officers heard the sound of gunshots in the area of 6th & H Streets NE. When they responded to investigate, their attention was directed to a fleeing vehicle. The officers followed the vehicle to 13th & E Streets NE, where several subject bailed out of the car. One subject was detained at the scene and officers subsequently located another suspect in the area of 13th & G Street NE. The area was secured while the officers conducted a preliminary investigation and made a through search of the location. As a result a handgun was recovered. Criminal charges are pending and the matter is under investigation by detectives from the Criminal Investigations Division.

  • Why does so much violence end up at 12/13 & G NE? There were a spate of carjackings, street thefts, stabbings – all in the past year and all in that area. And now these dudes ran there …cowinkydink or something else?

    Maybe it’s where they stash their ammunition?
