  1. There were also approximately ten shots fired in the 5600 block of 13th Street, NW at about 7:30 p.m. last night. Nobody was hurt, fortunately, but a number of cars have bullet holes.

  2. Thank you MPD for standing watch on Christmas Eve. As a 2 x Iraq War vet, I recognize the MPD for their hard work and appreciate how difficult it is to spend time away from loved ones on Christmas Eve. Thank you for being the ones who help make sure the rest of us can have a safe and happy Christmas. “We sleep soundly in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.” … Thank you MPD!
