A reader reports (and multiple readers also tweeted @PoPville):

“There was a shootout and fiery car crash on Sherman Ave tonight (Saturday around 11pm) in between Irving St and Columbia Rd. We heard 5 or so gunshots and then looked out to see a crashed car in flames and numerous shell casings covering the sidewalk. Not exactly the wild and crazy Saturday night I was hoping for.”

From MPD:

“MPD is currently investigating reports of shots fired, as well as a car fire, in the 3000 block of Sherman Are. NW. There are no reported injuries related to this event, at this time. Please avoid the area as we investigate.”


Also from MPD:

“On July 25, 2015, at around 11:47PM, First District personnel responded to the 1200 block of I Street, Southeast, in reference to a call for the sounds of gunshots. When the officers arrived on the scene, they discovered a victim inside the Potomac Gardens Housing Complex suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

The victim was transported to a local hospital by DCFD where he was treated for his injuries.
