    Ugh. This is like every weekend in Eckington. WTF.

    • Eckington resident


      That is just not true. There are not shots fired in Eckington every weekend.

    • ANC

      No kidding. We are having quite an ugly rash of gun violence lately.

    • CP

      Um, nope…

  • Concerned Eckington Resident

    Second shooting at that corner in as many months. Last one included a fatality. Begs the question when MPD will do anything about it.

    • ANC

      Let’s be fair, I’m sure the police WANT to do something. I hope they have the resources to address the clusterf— that our neighborhood is becoming.

      • Let’s be fair, their job is to protect and serve – wanting to do something is valueless and how we got in this position. The responsibility falls on the police, our elected officials and concerned residents to change this. What say you, ANC?
