    I heard this from my house – it was between 6-10 gun shots – the last one being after a pause after a flurry of them.

    I didn’t see/hear much police activity, figured they’d be on the scene pretty quickly in that location.

    Was no one shot?

      I was driving west on R St. NW when the shooting happened on 8th St. NW. One young woman was evidently hit in the chin. I counted closer to 15 rounds fired.

      I heard this as well. We saw a heavy police response at 8th and R within 2-3 minutes of hearing shots fired. Maybe you just couldn’t see them. I didn’t hear a lot of sirens, saw no ambulances, but one fire truck.
