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.”
