From MPD re: 3000 block of Mt. Pleasant St, NW:

“Around 9:45 pm witnesses heard the sounds of gunshots and observed a group of people run away. Found in the area were shell casings. No victims have been found.

If any had information regarding this event they are asked to call the MPD CIC at 202-727-9099 or text 50411.”

Also many reader reports about the area of 16th and Columbia Road, NW:

“At least four police cars at 16th and Columbia and a huge group of police at the columbia heights station. An Ambulance just arrived at 16th and Columbia as well. A huge group of youth lined up in front of the brown building on Mozart and Columbia. Anyone know what’s going on?”


“Not sure what’s going on. Community center place on mozart and columbia. Lots of cops. Started around 8. Seemed protest-ish. Around 11:45pm still lots of cops”

and on twitter:

“@PoPville Looks like someone ran a car into Columbia Heights Metro on the East Entrance…”
