14th and K St, NW

I got tons of reports on twitter yesterday afternoon about shots fired in Franklin Square Park (follow @PoPville to get the alerts immediately, apologies for the delay in posting I was away from the computer at the time.) Reports starting coming in at 5:18pm:

“Just heard 3 gunshots in Franklin square and watched someone sprint away.”

“think i just heard four gunshots in downtown dc? 14th and K?”

“I heard them too, and everyone on the street froze and freaked out. Hearing sirens now”

“there are police and two shells on the ground on k between 13th and 14th.”

“I was at traffic light at 14th/K, SE side of intersection when I heard it, everyone ran like mad for safety.Hope everyone is safe.”

The Washington Post reported:

“No one was injured, and D.C. police said it appears nothing was struck but the investigation was continuing.”
