14th and Fairmont St, NW by James

From MPD:

Motorists and pedestrians in the area should expect street closures while we investigate and are asked to seek alternate routes.

Anyone with information is asked to call 202-727-9099 or text to 50411.”

    I had just passed that intersection at 1:45 and then heard 3 or so shots. There were a couple more than the usual crew of loitering dudes on the corner of 14th and Fairmont as I walked by – wonder if they were involved. SMH.

    I wish there was reporting here or elsewhere about the why and who for all the shootings that we read about. It’s hard to know what to make of these reports otherwise. It’s very different to read that this was a mugging that went bad versus two people who knew one another.

    They should just shut down that park, its not a good place.

    • Telling It

      The park isn’t the problem, the people are.

    Apparently some folks in Columbia Heights have interesting ideas about how to observe Gun Violence Awareness Day, which Metro PD and others were observing today.

    I live in that intersection. I was stepping out of the tub when my mom said she heard gun shots. I thought it was just someone blowing up firecrackers again. So annoying. When I heard a siren and afterwards I walked outside and saw they had blocked the intersection. I recorded it, but to no purpose. SMH!

    Like clockwork. I’m pretty sure that there’s been a shooting at either 13th or 14th and Fairmont during the first week in June every year for the past 3 years.

    Would love to hear one thing – just one – that Brianne Nadeau has done to improve public safety and quality of life in DC.
    Crickets.
    She is really out of her league here.
