A reader reports:
“Five rapid gun shots last night at 4am exactly at the corner of Euclid and 11th in Columbia Heights. Our house is right next to the corner, it was extremely loud. It woke up our entire house. Very scary!
I called 911 and 4 cop cars arrived within 2 minutes. They came up 11th and turned east on Euclid toward Sherman.
Anyone know if someone was caught or shot? There’s nothing on MPD Twitter or local news sites.”
