From MPD:

“On December 9, 2015, at approximately 11:00 p.m., members from the Third District Crime Suppression Team were actively patrolling in the 2400 block of 11 St. N.W. As a result of the member’s observations and training, they were able to apprehend a violent suspect and recover a handgun. Consequently, the individual was placed under arrest. Due to the diligence and efficiency exhibited by the Third District members, another handgun was taken off of the streets of the District of Columbia and the perpetrator was arrested.

Anyone who has any additional information regarding this case should call police at 202-727-9099. Additionally, information may be submitted to the TEXT TIP LINE by text messaging 50411. DC Crime Solvers currently offers a reward of up to $1,000 to anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for an assault committed in the District of Columbia.”

      With diligence and efficiency, apparently.
