4th and T St, NW

A reader sent word of a major police presence in Ledroit Park late Friday afternoon:

“Above is a picture from the corner of 4th and T Street NW. Cops have been here since I got home around 4:30pm. They haven’t told us anything except to stay inside they aren’t letting folks come in or out of their homes at this time.”

On the Ledroit Park listserve, Jana Baldwin updates:

“The suspect and victim that were involved in the shooting last night knew each other.”

      No mystery why the MPD gun registration line was out the door recently?

        Shame that Americans are so fearful they think they need guns.

          It’s a shame that you are so fearful that you lock your front door…

    And what is with all the masked armed robberies and carjackings lately?!

      Should they be unmasked?

    Apparently (1) the LeDroit Park shooting took place in a building on 4th just north of T in an apartment that neighbors believe drugs were being sold out of; (2) the shooting was the result of a drug deal “gone bad”; and (3) the victim was only “grazed” by the bullet.  Heard this from a neighbor who heard it from a resident of the building where the shooting took place, so I guess that means it’s second or third hand info.  On the one hand, it’s nice to know this wasn’t a random act of violence.  On the other hand, it sucks to know your neighbors are dealing drugs.  Internet whiners, please start complaining about those last two sentences… NOW.

    Does anyone know what happened in the area of NY Ave/First St/M St NW yesterday morning? Saw the area was blocked off for police for a couple hours.

      I think I saw something about a Pedestrian hit and run accident.
