From GW Public Safety around 3:30am:

MPD shots fired incident. Two suspects in custody

“At approximately 3:30 a.m., the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) notified the George Washington University Police Department (GWPD) of an attempted carjacking in progress off-campus and that officers were chasing a suspect in the direction of GW’s campus. While still off-campus, MPD officers in pursuit fired in the direction of the fleeing suspects. While this incident was unfolding, a resident student called to alert GWPD of a suspicious person hiding near Munson Hall, located at 2212 I Street. GWPD relayed this information to MPD and in turn captured the suspect.

There is continued police presence along the I Street corridor between the Foggy Bottom-GWU Metro station and 2000 Pennsylvania Avenue and along 23rd street while MPD finalizes its investigation. There may be some residual police activity that continues into the mid-morning.

Campus safety is a community responsibility, and we thank our community member for her awareness and actions, which led MPD to be able to make a quick arrest. Call GWPD at 202-994-6111 if you need assistance or notice anything unusual or suspicious.”
