“The Third District is investigating a shooting that occurred at 6th and N St that occurred about 20 minutes ago. [just before 9pm]

@DCPolice Dept tweets:

“Shooting 2051 hrs in the 700 block of O Street, NW. Lookout for B/M, long dreads, last seen on a dirt bike.”

A reader tweets us:

“Shots fired on 7th and O. Careful out there!”

I asked if MPD was on the scene:

“yes along with ambulances…. same spot as usual.”

On the Shaw listserv a resident writes:

“We were just out walking the dogs, and a block away (near 7th & O) a loud shot rang out followed by screams and chaos, and then sirens. There had been a party going on there. There may have been some additional shots. This happens repeatedly in that same area, yet there were on police in the area when it happened.”
