“Around 10 PM last night my husband and I heard between 9-12 gunshots outside our back window. Apparently two men were shooting at each other while running down Longfellow Street between 5th and 7th Streets. Police arrived quickly at the scene.

As you can see below, a car was damaged. Also bullets went through a window in one of the condo buildings on Longfellow.

From what I’ve heard, no arrests have been made. I’ll be emailing Bowser’s office as well as MPD to see what information they have. We will enhance patrols in the area.”

OP passes on response from MPD:

“Hello. I was advised no one was injured nor has anyone reported being shot at. We found shell casings and two cars were damaged. If anyone has information please let us know.”
