    It’s definitely a cute block. 6:30 am is a weird time for a shooting – wonder what the deal was?

    Agree w/ ANON. That’s an odd block for a double-shooting/homicide. I would guess none of those involved came from there, but who knows. I live a few blocks away (Isherwood), and we’ve seen our share of nonsense, but it’s been much better over the past year or so.

    a lot of people on foot frequent our block, as anyone is entitled to take any block they choose. but, there is an odd combination of late night foot traffic that makes you a bit wary and total quiet. yes, it’s cute and well-lit. barely six hours before i heard and saw these shots, two kids were trying to saw a lock off of a scooter tied to one of our lampposts.

    i would like to point out how quickly the police and ambulance arrived. i may not have been the only neighbor who called it in, but they were there in seconds.

    15th St haso always been a mess, and I think it spills over onto 14th Place because it’s so quiet these days. One step forward, two steps back…that’s life in DC as far as crime goes. It’s shameful.
