A reader reports:
“There were shots fired at 3rd and P st NW maybe 30 mins ago, and now heavy police presence/road blocked. [as of 4pm] The police appear to have completed the site investigation and police tape is down on P ST and 3rd ST NW.”
Update from MPD:
“Fifth Police District Units responded to and investigated the Sound of Gunshots, 3rd & P St. NW, 12:37 PM, CCN: 019-245. A Witness stated that a group of folks were standing at New Jersey and P St. NW when a dark 4dr sedan pulled onto P St. from NJ Ave and fired several shots. We recovered evidence that supports that claims that shots were fired.
We firmly believe that this was not the case of an armed individual firing randomly.”
