Frustration Mounts as More Shots Fired on Jefferson Street


Update from MPD:

“At approx 12:40 AM we received multiple calls for the sounds of gunshots in both the 800 block of Jefferson Street and the 700 block of Gallatin Street, NW. Our Shotspotter system also detected the sounds of gunshots in the block. Officers responded and located cartridge casings in the block and a few vehicles that had been struck by gunfire, but we did not locate any victims or suspects. During the preliminary investigation we did gain some information on possible suspects and Fourth District detectives are actively investigating the case.

If you or anyone you know has information regarding this case, we ask you to call Command Information Center at 202-727-9099 or the Fourth District Detectives’ Office at 202-715-7506.”

A reader reports just before 1am Sunday:

“Just now. Dozens of gunshots. Same exact place as last time. Jefferson between 9th and 8th. Cops are here. Only took a sec.”


“Actually there were 2 drive bys. One on Jefferson and then another one a minute later on gallatin”

From twitter:

“@PoPville another fucking drive by. Sounded like a machine gun this time.”


“1yr old sleeping #help”


“Home from work at 2am via bus & SCARED!”

“@DCPoliceDept why is our corner taped off with a shooting, but no tweet or report? @PoPville”
