“Some pretty intense police/ambulance activity on North Capitol Between NY Ave and P on the southbound/northwest side.

Looks like something pretty serious must’ve gone down based on the big police presence and crime scene tape. Took me 45 mins to get from union station to North Cap and S. As I drove by, someone was being loaded into an ambulance.”


On the MPD Listserve a resident inquired about the New York Ave incident and an officer responded:
