Meghan reported around 11pm:

“Just heard a bunch of gunshots at North Cap and M.”

I didn’t see any reports from MPD so it doesn’t appear anyone was hit, fortunately. Updates if more is known.

    I definitely heard them on P but had no clue where they came from. It woke me up right around the time of that tweet. I never heard sirens though. Sounded like two different guns. A few shots from one and then 8-10 from another.

  • AC

    I heard the same. At least a dozen shots.

  • Truxton Tom

    No one really seems to care– no MPD release, no real police presence if any after… When’s it gonna stop?

  • BT

    Of course if it was a North Capitol and M then it was not in Truxton Circle (although near). Both the city and the people who live there define New York as the border of Truxton.

    • I think it was Hanover.

      • BT

        Well Hanover is in Truxton, but I know for a fact it wasn’t on Hanover. Could have been elsewhere in Truxton though. But if it was south of New York, then not Truxton.

        Either way, appreciate your reporting!

    At least part of the shooting took place on P NE – the police closed the street for a bit to look for bullet casings.
