Thanks to a reader for sending around 1pm:
“What is going on, street shut down, cops, police tape?”
“Gallery Place’s 7th & H Street entrance is closed due to a police investigation. The 7th & F St. and 9th & G St. entrances remain open.”
Updates when/if more is known.
Just saw a stabbing in Chinatown, right in front of Gallery Place metro, so there's that.
