About that Massive Police Presence in Columbia Heights Last Night


Around 6pm Monday night I got a ton emails and tweets along the lines of:

“The Officer reports an “active situation” and that we should feel “safe outside the perimeter.” Huge police presence in SWAT gear and helicopter circling above. This situation started before 6:00 PM. Stay safe, everyone!”

The situation was resolved around 8pm and Bill B in DC reported:

“Guy with gasoline and a knife. Mentally unstable, now resolved.”
