      Yeah, I don’t get this morning-shooting thing either. Are they all morning people who are full of energy and ready to shoot people first thing??

    Who is the PSA Lt. for this area because these shootings are happening often? I am afraid this will be a long hot summer with violence in Washington, D.C.

    One of the challenges facing Kennedy is the lack of daytime foot traffic. There are only a few legit businesses on the strip that draw a day time crowd (other than the drug dealing storefronts), and it makes it easier for stuff like this to happen in broad daylight. Hopefully some of the coming development will help this.
