    Happy they were caught, considering both are gang/crew affiliated hope we don’t see any retaliatory violence.

    Holy wow. Thanks for reporting out on this – I heard the gunshots last Thursday night while in bed. I got up to look out the window a few minutes later to see if there were cops out but there weren’t so I just brushed it off as nothing urgent. There were about 6 shots fired. Really scary and unsettling to hear. Any idea if it’s connected to the small nightclubby bars on that corner?

      Lyman’s and the Derby are nightclubs now?!

    I wish that Exxon right there would go away. Leave it to DC to create a moratorium on the sale of gas station properties for redevelopment. You have, like, 5 gas stations in a 1 mile here: another one up on 14th/Allison, 2 on Georgia b/w Upshur and Shepherd, another 1 or 2 on Georgia in Park View… Every time I drive by this one near where these two incidents occurred, there are drunk guys stammering up the sidewalk, people loitering behind the gas station building, people using the bathroom behind the building…etc. It’s a mess. Let’s create some housing or better use for the space

    I was subject to a minor assault in the Mt Pleasant Library on Saturday, not far from here. Some angry people out there.
