“At approximately 9:45pm on Thursday night, two subjects were observed shooting handguns in the 1400 block of R Street NW. An alert member of the community called 911 and gave a detailed description of the subjects. Responding units were quickly able to locate and apprehend both subjects in the area. Two handguns were recovered subsequent to the arrests of the two adult males. Fortunately, nobody was injured as a result of the reckless behavior by these subjects.
By calling 911 and providing the officers with a detailed description, the community member was critical in these successful apprehensions. This is another example of the outstanding relationship that the MPD (and the Third District specifically) values with our communities.
Thank you to all. Enjoy the holiday season and be safe.”
