From MPD:

“8:30 pm: 4900 B/O 7th Street, NW – MPD received multiple calls for sounds of gunshots from 7th & Emerson to 7th & Jefferson Streets, NW.

Officers canvassed the area and located multiple cartridge casings (9mm and .40cal) as well as a stop sign that had been shot.

No victims, witnesses, or other damaged property was located.

MPD took a report for Destruction of DC Govt Property.”

and

“On today’s date [Sunday] at approximately 5:45 pm, First District officers assigned to High Visibility Patrol duties observed suspicious activities and subsequently conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle at 9th and Maryland Avenue NE. At that time, they conducted an on-scene investigation and recovered a .45 caliber handgun. Officers arrested Mr. Dell Adams (57) of Southeast, Washington, D.C. charging him with felony weapon violations. As our work continues, it is disturbing, but yet pleasing to remove another illegal firearm from our city and our communities.

As the MPD remains committed to combat these street crimes, it is incumbent upon us all to remain vigilant of our surroundings and take precautions to protect our persons and secure our valuables from persons seeking to capitalize on our vulnerabilities. Please stay safe and be smart!”
