    Was her name Forresta Gump?

    Both these are right along my usual running route. (granted I wouldn’t be there at 1:30 am)

    I was chatting with brother on phone when i heard the shots, must’ve been at least 6-7 shots.

    Why was the suspect not charged with shooting a gun? That’s gotta be illegal in DC, right?

    • anon

      ADW or AWIK will probably be added if they can establish that that suspect was the person who fired the gun. However, since presumably the officers witnessed the suspect in possession of the pistol once they detained and frisked him, he got charged with that offense first.

    It’s been a lot more rare for shootings to happen West of Georgia Ave in this area.

    I heard the shots at 1am while I was out walking the dog. It was a ton of shots. like 12+. By the sound of it, I figured at least two people were shooting at each other. Glad an arrest was made.

    They said it was a million dollar wound, but the army must keep that money ’cause I still haven’t seen a nickel of that million dollars
