    This block is still closed off as of 7:30 am. Police are detouring cars along the side streets. There is access to the bike share at the corner of 14th and Harvard NW.

    Washington post is saying they have already arrested a suspect.

    Say what you will about their choice of profession, but you have to admire the dedication to the craft to be out there still shooting people during a hail storm with gale force winds.

      Also, assuming this was not at point blank range, calculating the bullet trajectory and getting and accurate shot is quite a feat under those conditions.

        I think that’s a dubious assumption.

      I know this is terrible (and sad) but I thought the same and laughed out loud. ha :)

    Assuming this is public housing related given it’s location (yes I understand it might not be) one can only be apprehensive with CM Nadeau’s ambition to increase public housing in the area.

      Columbia Heights Village isn’t “public housing” per se, as it’s not owned by DCHA. I believe it is 100% below-market low income housing, though.

      Dude has convictions for selling PCP and other drugs, plus another assault arrest. He was still on probation for a 2014 PCP sale conviction. Sounds like a drug-related issue.
