From MPD:

“On August 16, 2016, at about 3:15 p.m., members of the Fifth District made 2 arrests and recovered a Glock pistol in the 1800 block of Jackson St NE.”

In response a resident shares some details on the Brookland listserv:

“Police were chasing two young men… In their attempt to flee, they ran the stop sign on Jackson at 18th without stopping. Their vehicle impacted a mother and her infant child who were traveling south (up the hill) on 18th.

The Baby was transported. Unknown on the extent of injuries. Both men fled on foot and were caught by mpd.”

    Much appreciation to MPD – you all have a difficult, dangerous job that I could not do.

    Awful. I’m so sick of this s*!+!!!

    Hope the Mom and baby are doing okay, all things considered! And props to the police for doing a good job and taking more of these nitwits off the street, even if the courts choose to spit them right back out.
