    Explains the police presence and tape there this morning. Or maybe that was for a different shooting we will hear about tomorrow? Hard to keep track of that block sometimes.

    Shocking that this would happen on this block.

    I see a cop car parked around that corner regularly – guess they need something permanent?

      There’s been prob 5 shootings on this block in the last 2 years. I wish theyd install a permanent camera, although there’s other corners they can go to.

    They were arresting a man with 6 cop cars around just outside the Metro entrance at around 5:30 today. No idea what led up to it.
