A reader reports:

“All streets blocked in Chinatown. Evidently there is a body in the covered green car.”

Another reader reports:

“Police closed off all of 7th St between H & I as well as H St in front of the metro entrance and between 7th 8th. They also evacuated Walgreens across the street, someone said there was a dead body found in a car in front of Fudruckers (car was covered with a sheet). The police cars were positioned in a way to block the view of the car. Someone else said there was a suspicious package and that’s why everyone had to leave the area.”

On twitter another reader writes:

“Any idea why Chinatown is all blocked off by cops? No vehicle or pedestrian traffic for a few blocks. all of 7, 8 and 9 between H and I that I walked past. Couldnt get through on any.”


UPDATE: Reports on twitter indicate this could be a suspicious package situation – MPD looking in care now as of 1:05pm:
